I watch an old man
Trudging past from the liquor store
Who becomes a bent tree
With amputated limbs

And a young mother struggling
To soothe her crying child
Who becomes a bird building
A nest in a wild storm

And a boy with a guitar
Its case filled with pennies
Who becomes a stray dog
Abandoned by his master

And a sad-eyed girl
Pulling petals off a flower
Who becomes a bright star
Burdened with a world of wishes
