"It's Sometimes Pointless" it says, coffee stains -- you stop and stare
There is a crowd forming slowly, he looks straight ahead -- what is he doing?
He holds it with two small fingers, blank look cast -- you squint

Tossing in the streets blowing loudly
And the commuters returned to their trains

'help me miss' please.'
I can see her clearly now,
she looks a little like me.
but her hair is short and bright and red,
there is a spider pattern on the side.
she looks so confident,
I wish I was her.
COME SIT WITH ME DEMI I NEED TO TELL YOU SOMETHING,
ONE THING FROM ME TO YOU.
so I walk over to her and she whispers something in my ear.
'THINGS ARE NEVER HOW THEY SEEM'
she smiles and says that she has to go,
but im not upset that she is gone,
that woman made me feel a lot better.
she set me free.
the little thing she whispered to me,
