Today you are you
That is truer than true.
There is no one alive
Who is youer than you.

Dr. Seuss

there is a man
an old man
back broken
a somber marionette

one hand reaches out
a jerky tug
by puppeteer

he holds a cup
he doesn't shake it
like the others do

let the quiet
jangle of coins
ring through the streets of san juan

i wonder what he might say
this aged puppet
if those rusted lips
could open

a cry for help
a sour joke?

i don't even speak spanish.
