Woman urinating in traffic

I know, I know.

They  shook your gentle core,

scratched your love and

chased your fears out to the cold.

Now you’re here,

out in the light for everyone to see-

cut open, wet,

an unsightly mess

beating like a fish.

I know, I know,

that’s why you’re urinating on the road

on a Monday morning

while the rest of us are marching;

you’ve got nothing better to offer

after your heart has been

left to fall.

Muttering ‘mad’, ‘deranged’

they’re turning away;

no, it’s not you-

it’s the sight of our great, good promise

crumbling to waste,

and through its breaking, gaping cracks

there’s you -urinating on the road.
