BUENA SUERTE. GOOD LUCK. BON CHANCE
Feeble old man once listened to, sought out, respected.
Stooped over lady whose beauty once graced many
a living room and lighted many a fire. Lovely, loving
little girl protected, treasured, cared for.
All should have lunch together. Feeble man, stooped-over
lady, little girl, all should walk down the street together.
Instead, each walks separate paths, parallel lanes.
Old man to passer-by: Will you help me across the street?
Have lunch with me? Will you please, please, please?
All should hold hands. Recite each others rhymes.
Make up stories. Exchange ghost stories. Make up stories.
Tell each other what they wished for yesterday at the
plaza's wishing well and walk the path of what is called
communication. But know not how to practice.
