David Runs Away

David smiles and tells us of his dreams,
and his slow sure
achievement of his ambitions.
David feeds us, street food,
slightly stale and piquant.
David remembers the loved ones he has lost
and the broken ones he gently cares for.
David cries,
his memories not darker but clearer
in the night that surrounds us.
David turns away from us,
ashamed at this weakness.
David runs away.
