PASSERBY

WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU PASSERBY

THE DIRT ON HER SHIRT

SCRUFFY CLOTHES

THE ASH DRIPPED CREASES

ON A FACE THAT CEASES

TO FEEL THE COLD

ON THE CORNER THAT YOU CROSS

CUZ YOU DON’T DARE WALK

YOUR JUST A PASSERBY.

CAN YOU SMELL THE STENCH

OF A STALE CIGARETTE

SOAKED INTO THE COAT

OF THE ONE WHO DIGS IN THE DIRT

FOR A BUTTE TO RE-BURN

AS IT CHOKES

AND YOU THE PASSERBY.

CAN YOU TASTE THE PASTE

OF NEVER HAVING BRUSHED

THE MOUTH THAT EATS FROM THE MUSH

IN A DUMP THAT YOU NEVER SEE

CUZ ITS HIDDEN IN THE BACK

WHERE YOU NEVER PASSERBY.

CAN YOU HEAR THE CRIES

 OF A SOUL THAT SIGHS

WHEN THEY CRITICIZE

THE SPIRIT THAT IS HOVERING

WHILE YOUR BRAIN KEEPS COVERING

THE PAIN THAT IS INSIDE ~ GO AHEAD PASSERBY.
