they are crying, somewhere
miles away, and it has nothing
to do with you;
if you knew, would you care?

there were pebbles wedged
into the sole of your shoe
tiny and grey like beads

your feet bled, and you


you were still, then
you kept walking on

disappear into the distance

and it slips through
your fingers as if you were
far too awed to hold it tight
