Blues for Joey – poem in haiku form

BLUES FOR JOEY

hush little brother
do not fear the ultimate
lay down in my arms

be still little man
you no longer need to cry
angels give solace

walk the other road
believe in a better world
dreams shall not resist

dwelled the wrong places
wandering in outer space
years in white satin

his body falls apart
freed from chains of life
he comes gliding down

I look in his eyes
read words melting in the snow
afraid of the end

hush little Joey
you no longer need to fly
angels are on guard
