Invisible Sometimes

I saw red tail lights through a windshield freckled with a dark sky’s tears and a helicopter hovering over a city crawling to work.  I saw a rope light in a dark window.  I saw pleading eyes and shook my head no while fingering the silver coins in my pocket. Why did I do that?

I saw a lover’s quarrel playing out in the street, like a scene from a movie or reality show. Obscenities and spit hurling through the air….

And……I saw you looking right through me, as if I wasn’t there.
