I met

I met a man the other day

Clueless to the beast.

He slept 40 years

Only to be awaken by a fly.

I met a model in the bathroom.

She showed me herself.

Withered and blue,

Worn and tattered.

The child playing on the street

Told me stories of pain.

Such a young heart

Bruised 10 years later.

I saw myself today

20 feet below.

Building a latter

With too many rungs.
