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.
