you might find meaning
in the mumblings
of the maddened or
in the ejecting of
the derelict
the night could find a body
left with understanding
or left
by the law and the
things they do
the tequila accepts the lime
a mind accepts
the noise
the street,
and it is
only the street, that
does not turn away
anyone with something to
say to the sky

the only thing
big enough
to listen
