It All Just Fell Into Place
I'm used to drunken men
who cry at parties pops drives us home early from,
after two shots of Fanta, or his fourth glass of milk.
Steve McQueen turned down roles
as he couldn't cry on cue -
it was said to be his sole failing. I don't know.
I've cried a lot both drunk and sober -
cried after two shots of H2O
at his first party, months after his wife died.
I sat beside him,
The Hunter was on T.V.,
Steve McQueen close to tears in his final scene
at the changing of the guard.
Somehow it all just fell into place, that night
