Hair blows in my face as I manage a drink of coffee Watching everyone walk by unimpressed and unencumbered. Life stretches out before me in this town Yet there is no direction or course that I can think of just now. With a gentle nudge from the universe I put on my coat Walk a little ways down the street until I am lost in thought. Crazy always stirs my head when I haven't anything else, Except the coffee I couldn't drink. Denial tends to cover my shame As my dress covers most of me. Though I am tempted at times to ride the waves of the River Tay Until I can't feel anymore of my past. Walking seems to get me by today As I sit back in my chair and wonder what tomorrow will bring. When I wake there are bottles all around me A minor setback, albeit it mild. Sun advances in the sky as I return to have more coffee Sit watching seemingly the same people walk by me Without a care in the world Which is what I'm trying to pretend myself. Someday this time will be my past And Dundee will never remember me. But I'll never forget the peace and serenity The quiet bubble that was this time.
