The Girl in the White Mask

The old man on the other side
of the park,
watches the girl as she plays
in the sand.
A gun in her jacket and cigarettes
in her hand.
Stolen money packed in her bag,
she wears a mask.
A white mask, one or despair
and pain.
He knows who she is, why
she's here.
She is the suburban savior, a lost
And still he watches, a cold breeze

Then she is gone.

He now knows the sounds of hope.
