Did you ever
    take the time to

       STOP 

    and watch people?

An obscure man
   with wet feet
   squinting
   through a Polaroid.

A boy
   with outstretched arm
   watching as a flock of doves
   fly away.

An old woman
   angrily shaking
   the dry crust
   off her lap.

Another boy
   with an irritated air
   yanking on
   the threads of Fate.

A woman
   affixing her pump
   and straightening her skirt
   by the rose bush.

A girl
  rubs her elbow
  with a muted rainbow
  chasing itself around her.

An old man
   motionless on a park bench
   with the book
   straddling his feet.

A man
   hanging
   limply
   onto a tree.

A woman twisting
   away
   to reach

     forbidden fruit.
