Him, Me, Them
(April, 21, 2016, 5:22 PM)

witnessing a near death is sobering and still
a man walking into a street and another man bumper, body, floor, brakes
white noise and a rining takes over
it wasn’t me
they are there
did someone die?
are they okay?
just fine, oh he is walking, angery, defensive
acceleration and distance
onlookers regurgitate the experience
i write this down
walk away humbled, yet walking
vicariously dead through him
