Why is it
that green is the color of jealousy?
Tonight winds started to stir into fall.
I saw a man come out a building filled with a silent
sadness that hovered around rage,
it was the off track betting building.
I wondered what sort of savings he had lost.
What he perhaps earned earlier in the night,
another man grabbed my eyes with his,
and shook his head. A prayer for the man
or for me
unable not to watch.
I sometimes feel that inside
I am nothing but black melting tar
and things are dying to get stuck inside.
