sound of a salty tear~Sound Of A Salty Tear~
One evening as I was walking down,
To see the town.
Too see what I could see,
Maybe today there just might be,
Another someone just like me.
Down on main street,
I listen for a beat.
The beat of another lonely heart,
to be connected and never to part.
In the distance I can hear,
A single salty tear.

Then he began to bellow.
"JANE!! ever since you left me it has done nothing but rain, I can no longer take this pain."
All the while his face still pointed towards the sky.
Now three feet away,
I don't know what to say.

The embodiment of injury waiting to happen, an invitation to a tetanus shot... the city never hauled it away. No one ever wants anywhere near it; it radiates an eerie sense of calculating watchfulness.
And at night, it wanders.
When darkness falls, and the last cars heading into the hives of tract housing stop illuminating the asphalt with moving-picture shadows, it… unfolds. Bitter, broken tangles, grotesquely mov
