no (spare) change

and so we walk on by
without learning their stories, 
their former glories, 
their names. 

we look at the side
our phones. the sky. 
but their soulful eyes. 

what if we bent 
(empty-handed, open
 and let them 
know they’re seen? 

what a different world 
this might still be.

    Really well written take on an unfortunate, sad reality.
