Poetry by Alexander Thomas

In a hostel
In san Fransisco
I walked the pier today
And I saw the ocean lady
And I thought of my dad
the one time
Walked to me
And said
“Son no matter what you do, always do your best”
And I tried for 14 years until I realized
I was a loser
But then I learned to lose, and lose well
It was the first day of my life
And so I was the best of the worst
A bastard among men
An orphan reflecting
Years later
In san Fransisco
