Please

May 7, 2009
Open door
Step out of
Perfectly elegant
House of glass

Outside,
Chaos
Sidewalk cracks
Oozing panic

Child
Face leaking streams of
Genuine worry




Please help.


Sister caught in tree!
Turn away
Hand raised
Portable wall
Flawlessly blocking
Young brother’s plea

Continue down
Filthy streets

Woman screams
Wails slicing through
Hazy film
Coating street

Turn away
Pretending not to see
Hurry home

Trip and fall
Leg bent at impossible angle
“Help please! Someone”
People pass on by
