watching;
a retarded boy smiling
and the spit in his mother's napkin
and resilience:
the man blowing by me with yesterday's papers,
and how i live and die in the moment that our eyes meet
and how it will never matter that he never knew me,

jealousy

and resilience:
children don't know they're childish,
but i do when i try to sing,
and tired, i'm so tired,
and resilience:
i was born to be 80 years old.

"how i live and die in the moment that our eyes meet"

i thought this was gorgeous. nothing much to add.

Ending was a little blunt in contrast to the beautifully poetic rest-of-it.

Loved this part. Great ending. The whole piece is awesome. No complaints.
Cause I love feelin' dirty
And I love feelin' cheap
And I love it when you hurt me
So drive those staples deep
