Orphan Man in Sunday Clothes
with an Eye Patch
The rich and the happy can choose to keep silent,
no need to bid for attention.
But the desperate must reveal themselves,
must say: I am blind
or: I am going blind
or: It's not good for me here on Earth
or: My child is sick
or: I am not holding it together...
But when is that really enough?
So, lest people pass them by like objects,
sometimes they sing.
And sometimes their songs are beautiful.
