i sort of know this guy

about my age

with down syndrome

just enough to say hi

and how's it going

and so on

he always said real good

and smiled a big smile

he always wore headphones and

sort of bobbed to the music

and smiled a lot of the time

for no apparent reason at all

i hadn't seen him in a while

last night i was out and

i walked past him while he

was waiting the cross the street

he wasn't moving with his music

even though his headphones were on

he looked worried and sad

and he looked at me

i said hi and smiled

he nodded his head, expressionless

and turned away

life is hard, friends

Moi, j'avais jamais rien dit. Rien
