Billy’s Rain

Billy’s Rain

How do you think I feel
When you make me talk to you
And won’t let me stop
Till the words turn into a moan?
Do you think I mind
When you put your hand over my mouth
And tell me not to move
So you can “hear” it happening?

And how do you think I like it
When you tell me what to do
And your mouth opens
And you look straight through me?
Do you think I mind
When the blank expression comes
And you set off alone
Down the hall of collapsing columns?
