For Joyce - Poem by Imogen Lee Greene

Nobody nobody can relate
too the world Joycelin reels
she can play a video
or write verse after verse

But still nobody can feel what she feels
Nobody nobody can understand
Why Joycelin does it so
She can put on a kaftan
or make a green tea
But, what Joycelin is offering nobody knows
nobody nobody wants to love
A person who hasnt the strength to stay
Joycelin pretends
but the effort is to draining
she has only the strength to run away
will nobody, nobody will give this a chance
this baby she holds
so fragile and small
nobody will look for the child in her hands

Joycelin hasnt the strength to unfold
somebody somebody should dance with her
when her face has fallen from their depths
should throw rope after rope into her arms
somebody see
the trails she leaves
