Sunrise Bedtimes 2


Once upon a time there was a normal man
who stumbled upon something that made him cry.
He wasn't one in a million, in that way,
but in the literal way,
just another man with no extraordinary gift or knowledge.
Then the telly played musician of the year
on his little i-phone
as he walked to work,
and the speed of the fingers' music
on the keyboard was both beautiful
and depressing.
A car of youths screamed past, yelling
and startling his tears...
... he didn't know where the sadness began.
