100 Word Song: Poor Places: On a Discarded Bar Napkin in Istanbul

This week’s 100 Word Song song was picked by blog sister seablackwithink over at An Honest Day or Two.

On a Discarded Bar Napkin in Istanbul:

Dear Kara,
Tomorrow I’m coming home, having served my time in the war.

I met this girl in a bar tonight; she went on and on about this band called Wilco, and all I could think about is how much you love Bob Dylan. I left her sitting there, because although you left me when I left, I still miss you – need you – to alleviate my nightmares: killer machines roaming the streets, and I without my weapon or armor for defense. . . I know that it’s safe here; but when I close my eyes, it’s hot and heavy outside.

This post was crafted for the 100 Word Song prompt at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog.
