In the station tonight
young people break up
women hold bare midriffs
tears well up and spill
between glittering breasts
It took so much to get here
all the expectations and plans
Now he is drunk and
doesn't understand
how much she hoped
to please him, to feel loved
and how tired she is of trying
of wishing
someone might tell her
at last, who she is
