Tears of a Stranger

some prick rips a dancer’s
heart to teardrops

then collects those
drips in beggar
achin’ cup,

bottoms up..

vagrant takes his sip and
drinks the tears of
a stranger,

and feels every drop
of her downer’
dread and

holds a hand to
heart like pain’s
his own,

and not that of
some stripper
