If Stones Could Weep

On a beach
Lonely
Pebbles pillowed on
Sands
Of dried Tears
Running
Cosmetic colours.
Weeping
Like clowns
Weary;
Like Madames
Jaded;
Like spinsters
Forgotten;
Like Quarterbacks
Losing;
Like B-actors
Whingeing
Like rock stars
Aging;

Or

Old fans
Rockin’,
And young girls
Desireing;
And brave Oglala
Praying;
And Alice Cooper
Performing;
And children on
Halloween;
And Homecoming
Queen.

Your mascara is running.
