poem # 4






have you ever loved a woman
and she didn't love you back?
have you ever been hit by a freight train
when you were walking down the track?

have you ever watched a bumblebee

hover over a flower?

have you ever wished you could live forever

just for one hour?

have you ever watched a raindrop

disappear down a drain?

have you ever stepped on a spider

and never felt its pain?

have you ever gone to the drugstore

and ordered a sandwich there

and eaten it and eaten it and eaten it

till people started to stare?

have you ever loved a woman

and she called you a pathetic fool?

have you ever sat on the sidewalk

and wished you didn't have to go to school?
