My Brecht

– is not the author of Threpenny Opera,

it’s the guy whom I

would not have liked much as a man

being married to one woman,

courting another – yet who

found a tenderness when in love

that made him want to escape

rain drops lest they beat him and

learned to love – the world

if nothing else,

before they dug him in.
