Another Life 7 - Poem by Charles Chaim Wax
The window looked in at us
huddled in the Terminal Hotel
the night dreaming of stars
that could never shine in Brooklyn
sucked up by arc lights
harsh, and they never dared to twinkle.
Frances continued, “The animals are everywhere.
You have to be careful.
A boy got killed the other day
by some bad boys
they killed him very badly
and when he tried to crawl away
they showed no mercy
they shot him in the mouth
and all sorts of places on his body”
Candy said quite calmly,
“There is no mercy
on the face of the earth.”
“I’ll take care of you, ” I said.
She stared at me
investigating my face, finally,
I believe you.”
