Bad Poety Alien (poem #4) sad poem prototype

poem #4
(sad poem prototype)
sad ass poem

have you ever eaten a sweet and sour lollipop?
in the rain

a homeless man begs for a nickel on a corner
he only has one shoe
I shed a tear into the river of life for him
and pretend for a moment that I have no home as well

the sky is overcast
a 747 hovers in the sky
perhaps Bill Clinton is aboard
..but maybe not

I walk down to the oceanside to watch the sun sink into the horizon

I see a starfish washed up in the sand
gasping for water
so that it can breathe

I find a broken bottle and carry it to a trash can
that's my good for the day
