[A bit of mystery this time around with our favorite Rockstar-Poet-in-Residence, Barbie Dockstader Angell!]
The Silent Stranger’s Wish
Last nite I met Humanity
and he offered me a smile.
He lit my smoke and bought my drink,
then we sat and talked a while.
Last nite I found a part of Peace
that I had thought I’d lost,
while we spoke of Life’s absurdities
and Love’s ever rising costs.
Last nite I saw the breaking point
where Dreams and Niemares meet.
I saw them walking hand in hand
down a dimly darkened street.
Last nite I had a vision
and it made my Worries fade.
And I sat and wove this Wish for you
and dreamed of better days.
