An unshaven man
In a worn army coat
Passes on the sidewalk
With a liquor store bag

While across the street
A girl without makeup
Also walks by
Carrying one herself

And each one sees
The other and for
A moment their eyes
Lock in an embrace

As if both of them feel
The same lonely burden
They try to forget
The same lonely way
