The Mercenary


I know my small role
temporary contractor
begging for friendship

friends who remember
how many of us have them
callin' bone-cold phones

not many these days
the friends you can depend on
only want tasks

favors to bank on
'fore we go any further
I'm not a suture  

a walking stitch kit
or dial-up-step-and-fetch-it
favorite sad kid

who can i call in
the midst of a nasty skid
home and forgotten?
