You’re losing your mind,
Like dollars blown on the street side.
And you may ask me why.
Has God forgotten me?

But your mind is bruised,
Like fruit in the aisles, chewed
Of a puzzled heart.
Do you remember me?

I like to think the stars may see,
And the moon cross paths with memory.
As I dance a jig to fair nobody.
Will anyone ever see me?
