Blood on the street

One does not expect pain
to lie undraped on walls
calling out to passersby to stop
and look at it

When it does
none seem to notice
and its belly swells and explodes
spilling the contents
on the busy street

But none can stay to watch
They worry about their soles/soul
and hurry away
side stepping with eyes and feelings
pretending to be blind at heart
