Amy Winehouse (“Days of Wine & Roses”)

By Elvira

once a success,
now                 like stone.
mascara-ed eyes,
tattooed body
voice singing of
pain, angst
shooting star
all the trappings of
but as Marilyn Monroe           knew
once the audience
leaves              —          it is yourself:
Everyone         loves
a winner —
but they care not for a fragile soul
for you:
the Drugs;
and      Wine    wins.
