Can You See Me?

Me, I sniff glue to forget.

Me, I want to forget.

Me, I pray every day to forget where I am.

Hands stretched wide

Help me.

Stop.

Do you see me?

 

Huge man getting huger

Me, I get smaller

Me, I get –

Things were better before Corona

 

Me, I sniff glue to forget.

To forget me, I have troubles

To forget my loss of dignity

To forget my poverty

To forget that people forget me I am a people too.

Do you see me when you hurl that coin?
