compassionate heart

at the party
we all see
scott is back
fallen rock star
lean - silver roots
betray black hair
scott is back
from the dance
at the edge
change partners
and fall over
one too many times
scott is back
no smokes
no drink
eyes clear
blood opiate free
with only his motor bike
helmet as a shield
alone in the room
friend through years
runs her hand over him
"scott is back
he's still here"
takes his palm
holds it on her breast
so he can feel the heat
