who is he (2)

Poem #15 from tuesday night at emile’s

Back to: tuesday night at emile’s – Introduction

in a place of endings
does he seek rebirth
among these stone-bordered ghosts
among shadows

what hope does he seek
what heart to find

he is weeping

are the tears that are falling
spilled over me
what does he mean

this man is dangerous
makes me responsible
for the way that he feels
the state of his mind

why does he cry
what did I do
what should I do

what have I done to him

what is he doing

to me
