Six Dollar Wine

 Six Dollar Wine (And A Dime)

I wait patiently between the pages of fiction           
                The remembrance of me slops
Between the breaths of your tear drops
I’ve been used as a bookmark
    For a forgotten novel on your shelf
  And my future may look dark
     But I’ve learned to live with myself
  I’m just a flattened out receipt
              For a cheap bottle of wine
  That you bought on 5th Street
              For six dollars (and a dime)
      Someday you will open my home
            And I will no longer be alone
           What will happen when you find me?
     Will you remember when I was set free?
       Will you remember that I was nice and clean
                 From the roll of paper in that machine
   That you so often got pieces of
  At the liquor store that you love?
