Character Reference


I’ve known this man
     for sixty years.
He hides his brains
     behind his ears.

He’s listening for
     the voice of God.
His neighbors think him
     rather odd.

He hides his eyes
     behind his tears.
He’s waiting till
     his vision clears.

He’s grieving for
     the human race,
Who hide their Self
     behind their face.
