sinking in a wrinkled suit.
Oh look - you've got your knees wet.
Oh look - you forgot your hat.

and you've lost the race -
but you're the same as anyone
and not some hopeless case.

help this to go down?
Or perhaps a drink?
Don't think - just act -
but don't play roles with me.

you've drained the cup
leaving rings as round
as those circling your eyes.
I hate good-byes.
Shall I see you tonight
just after eight?
This is what comes
with forty years of self-hatred:
deep in the dark you lay...
deep in the dark you lay...
garnering the courage to face
forty minutes of freedom a day.

Such a cliché...forty minutes a day.
