Empty Pockets full of Dreams


2,50 for a half pint of whiskey
1,50 for a pack of smokes
30 minutes to find something eatable in the garbage
clothes? Hey
beggars can't be choosers
police was cool so far
free on line action
stinking feet & underwear
the ocean became real ugly
no good place to sleep
knowing every bum in the street
shaving dry
dirty nails
cleaning toilets & don't get paid
beaten up
chased away
sweating, killing time
Lamborghini's & a guy shits out of his stomach
against a newspaper box right on Lincoln & Collins
blisters, sunburn, addicted thieves
women crazy
bums are lazy
mornings hazy
this is Miami Bitch !!

Thank you so much for all your comments. I actually lived there in the streets for four and a half months. I´m writing a book about life in the streets and I had to experience it myself how to survive day by day without steeling, begging, breaking the law and even without asking anyone for help. G
