On Silver Streets

Forsake college and career
and become a travelling street musician.

share a cardboard box
with a friendly homeless man
and his faithful dog
and sing a song
under the night sky
where stars are not visible
from where you lay
on silver streets.

but when you look around you
and there is nothing there
that you can call your own
you can close your eyes
and find that you are your own.

but since you cannot live this way
for the world outside is too harsh
and the wind burns your skin
and the rain drowns your toes

let it be inside you
that cardboard box
where you sleep
a travelling street musician.
