As I Am

A slouched man sits defeated

     at a table all alone

his back weighted with pounds

                       of closeted skeletons.

A woman walks across the scene

                no looks are given

                no one knows her name

                she knows not where she goes.

A child plays and laughs

                with shining eyes

                and questions aplenty

       to be brushed off again.

All that I have been and seen,

                another is as I.


HG – 1995-2000
