Mendigo
JD (8-22-1969 / Santo Domingo)

Mendigo

There's a man on the corner
Long filthy hair and nails

He looks at the sky
He looks at the street
He smiles

He sees me inside my brand new car
Four screams and a gargoyle by my side

He looks at the sky
He looks at the traffic jam
He smiles

My kids are excited because it's Friday
My wife keeps talking about supermarkets

He looks at the sky
He looks into my eyes
and dragging his feet he walks away
