… hadn’t slept I was tired

it was a hot day I hadn’t slept I was tired

I sat down on the sidewalk
and leaned against a little tree

closed my eyes
slipped into reverie

anxious over injustice how thoughtless
we can be           how unkind

or maybe I was just lost
in what people think of me

I must have looked bad
because a woman came over
and gave me some water

I think she was worried about me

    • Just at the moment I was having cynical thoughts about my brother man, an act of kindness arrives. And I must say, H, I probably was looking pretty bad. I’m just glad she didn’t call 911.
