Why are you crying
dear little girl
with feathered angel wings
and see-through dress
sat on midnight train
looking out the window
into the blackness
like a Rembrandt painting
where owls and badgers move around
I wish you well

I’m sat across from you
silent tears roll down your cheek
like a pony
or a baby gazelle
with your wings all white
and bare-legged
in the cool spring at night

it’s sad that you’re crying
and unhappy
maybe you’ve been to a party
and somebody upset you
or you are drunk
and in your drunkenness you open up
to the sadness in the world
and you aren’t crying for yourself
but for all the people
in the world
who don’t have time to cry
because they’re too busy
