Bluebeard

Today, I saw 3 blind men, ‘Bluebeard’ and a dude with a permanent sneer.

The first blind man was hesitantly inching into the street, disoriented and unable to find the curb.  As I weighed the options — do I  help him or is he aware of where he’s going — a man in a fedora placed a guiding hand on his shoulder and led him to the sidewalk. Ironically, a woman training a guide dog for the blind looked on from the corner.

‘Bluebeard’ was a haggard, graying man with a smurf, blue beard.  He had a cardboard sword wrapped in duct tape and tucked into his belt.
