Looking up,
Little Darling rubs his eyes.
Oh God…
Sees dandelions, advertised,
Pictures of blue skies.
Oh God…

Everyday,
Darling rides the trains
And his mother uses him as a cardboard sign.
Oh God…

And I say
Nothing
Do
Nothing.

My shift is done
Serving ladies in white gloves.
Oh God…
The pockets stuffed,
Of my waiter’s tux.
Oh God…

Back on the street,
Count 29 asleep:
People on the steps of St. Francis.
Oh God…

And I say
Nothing
Do
Nothing.

Home in bed,
Drifting off again,
Oh God…
Eyes opened,
By noises overhead.
Oh God…

Banging
Screaming
At 3 AM.
You couldn’t imagine
The awful things
That he says.
Oh God…

And I say
