Mike Meraz

The Girl with the Golden Eyes

the girl with the golden eyes
has crooked teeth,
dresses badly
and smells of liquor.

she comes in and buys
“Evan Williams”
from you, looks at you
and smiles and says,
“I’ll see you later.”

the girl with the golden eyes
is an alcoholic,
duped up,
reeking of innocence
and shame.

she is everything.
she is everyone.
