The Polyphonic Spree – We Crawl

Too many days labeled as incidents, with strong words we add appendages to. What the hell. Just one of those days. I passed a barefoot guy on the sidewalk tonight. Speed walking in jeans and a hospital gown. A look too real for a reality show actor. What, no cameras? Looking lost and angry, as white plastic hospital bands dangled from his wrists. The crazy look in his eye made crazier by the reflection of my expression. Wanting to change my course of action because his made us both uncomfortable. In a blooper reel you’d point and stare, here we look in the other direction and walk a little faster. The voice in my head says, “you won’t believe what I just saw” to a friend that will. The song that plays is too sadly ironic and cheesy to not turn up. It was my song until this moment in passing. The trumpets are replaced with the world’s tiniest violins, as I rush to avoid being asked for a verb I wish I could give.
