Almost hitting
a crosswalk reader
lost to the world
having just received
a selfie
from the girl leaving him
for someone else
“Dear John”,
she might have written,
“Don’t take this personally”
At that moment
as the car bumper grazed
his life without her,
it all seemed so pointless
to carry on,
“Out of the way!”
the driver yelled,
insensitive to his heart
wanting only
to get on with things
before the light changed

before the light changed…..
