Wanted to do this for Labor Day , got somewhat backed up better
Late then never .We stand in the rain a very long time at Highland Park ,
For weeks you know what work is ,,,,,, if your old enough to read this you
know what work is , although you may not do it , forget you , this is about
Waiting , shifting one foot to another , feeling the light rain falling like mist
Into your hair blurring your vision until you think you see your own brother
Ahead of you , maybe you rub your glasses with your fingers across the
Shoulders , then your with the same sad slouch , the grin that does not hide
The shoulders , the sad refusal, to give in to rain . To the hours waiting to the
Knowledge that some where ahead a man is waiting who will say , “” NO, were
Not hiring today .
You love your brother , now suddenly you can hardly stand , the love flooding
You for your brother , who is not beside you , or behind you , or ahead cause
He went home trying to sleep off a miserable night shit at Caddilac so he can
Get up befor noon to study his German . Works eight hours a night , so he can
Sing Wagner , the opera you hate most the worst music ever invented .
How long has it been since you told him you loved him , held his wide shoulders ,
Opened your eyes wide and said these words , and maybe kissed his cheek !
Something so simple ,so obvious, not because your young , out to dumb , not
Because your a failure, or even mean , or incapable of crying , in the presence
Of another man , nope it’s just because you don’t know what work it .
