Your KungFu

“Your KungFu” by David J. Thompson

Jesus Drinks Alone

I don’t remember
seeing him come in
I guess
he’s been here the whole time
sitting over there
at the other end of the bar
bottle of beer in front of him and
he doesn’t have a beard
just his long hair hanging
down past his shoulders
his faded denim jacket
over his black hooded sweatshirt and
I keep thinking
he looks just like the rest of us
like he has nowhere else to go
so he just sits in here for hours
drinking alone
nobody believes in miracles
anymore and
not the place it used to be
