Carpe Diem Special #196 Hamish Gunn’s 2nd “on the street corner”

solitude

unwelcome advance ironic

still alone

~

a child sings

notes of melancholy

will the door open

~

I watched life

acting out, shedding values

damn it was fun

~

too late frantic

realizations of passion

kids will still cry

~

lamppost chatter

a warm summer evening

cold hearts

~

I wish to breathe

if might love be found

I wish to breathe

~
