Because I have lonely teeth
Because my eyes have too much to see
 and too much time to see it in
Because I live in a concrete jungle,
 but can't reach the branches
 of the money trees
Because the brown shoes
 that I carry
 like a flag without a country
 are furled and tied
 looser than my coat buttons
Because I have lonely teeth
Dawn arrives too soon.
