blue veins edged with lichen
sketched into marble to document the lives,
anonymous bodies rotting beneath

our feet, mine cloaked
in blue silk, treading treacherously
across mud that spills

across my path burdening
me making me step out of my way
skip across that gravestone

forcing me to notice
the people i walk across, stomp across
my feet treading the hair

that is the grass
the robin searches for worms
the taxi speeds

away
