Old Folk Song

Hiro almost missed hearing it
on the train platform at west 4th street
like a small familiar bird singing in the distance
as he boarded the arriving train
for just a moment
he could see him through the crowd
a young Japanese man singing for money
so alone and far from home
Hiro knew all the words
