Just now at the station
I saw an old man
Chasing a younger woman
The woman just stared at him
With anger in her eyes
and asked him not to follow
“I’m your father”
“Who the hell are you”
Then the old man went away
And then turned back and ran to her
With his half-disabled leg

He pretended he was not following
Until the woman walked into the gate
And he ran through the machine at his maximum speed
With his half-disabled leg
And stalking at her back
And asked her to come back
But she will not
And never will she.
