Two views (two)

When I am older
in some future
I will be asked
"Why do you write."

I will point
See that old man
peeing in the plastic


He's been on welfare
nearly all his life
just another cast off
But now a corporation
is paying for him


They took him to surgery
Gave him a new kidney
and a lovely tattoo
and now he pees medicine for them

I write
he pees
we both have meaning now
