Someone should have seen it.
Meaning, the lumber in the eye,
the dead dog under the porch,
a blue planet falling apart.

A clot in the artery.

These are things which cannot
be ignored. You with dark glasses
and bruised cheek. Those of us who
hide needle-marks under our sleeves.

Everyday a piece of us disappears.

Perhaps, a shocking word will
bring the skeleton into the light
or a small child's hand protruding
out of a mass grave.
