Cooney

heroin

if you were

feeling kind

you could

call him

a character

a piece

of local colour

the not so kind

would call him

a thieving junkie

.

he bought oblivion

in tenner deals

that universal

panacea

that caresses

as it kills

.

Cooney

double dealt

he lied

he cheated

and he stole

but in the end

was generous

he gave away

his soul

.
