Watching the sailboats

Because things went wrong,
no love in that song
he
stood once again
high upon the aqueduct
and as fucked up as he felt
he knelt
to pray to whoever, whatever
and whenever
the harps start to play
someone
somewhere
always kneels to pray
he
was no different,
so different,
the same as everyone else.
