For The Girl In The Evening Dress - Poem by Greg Young

The way she made me feel like Ronald Colman
in “A Tale of Two Cities”

I just wanted to shout at her,

tell her,
you have walked between the raindrops!

Some people are broken and that's how the real world is!

I cannot weather a Goddess!

Stop with Hope! This isn't a Hollywood Movie!



and how I also wanted to tell her tonight,
when I came home,

I found a rabbit on my sidewalk bleeding

and what a hypocrite I am.

helplessly watching its arms grow stiff

as If I could ever matter,
chanting again and again

”C'mon God,
Please,
Just let it Live.”
