twelve

lying on my back

staring at the stars

wondering

just what

the all of that meant

seeing shooting stars

wishing

for a better life world

future

& the old man

telling the world anybody

about his idiot boy

lying on the ground

staring at the sky

watching dreaming

the fool

thinking ridiculous thoughts

about a brighter day

to come

& now I understand

he did not know

what to do with

or for me
