in my solitude
through the brick work
this one bright star

    the streetlamp
    buzzes to life

    can't see,
    autumn night sky, from my lonely room,
    plays the song

    walls of commerce
    paths to be followed
    soul of an artist sighs

    Thinking of parents,
    suddenly a shooting star...
    Really She or he?

    the children step, dance
    on the sunlight
    from torn roof

    empty evening -
    'cept for the streetwalker
    lone star on the horizon
