a mundane thought

By Vinnie_e+w

walking along the pavement:  charcoal, rectangular brickwork


it struck me


as it often does,


about how there are so


many people in this world 


that I'll


never get to


know.


 


i passed by acquaintances and shared a nod


sometimes there'll be friends


who'll smile and share jokes,


 


but there are so many people


who I'll never know


Intimately


Explicitly


--Under the covers of a threadbare sheet


Or innocuously enough,


At a meet and greet--


Implicitly


Quietly


Covertly.


 


i crunch on fresh fall leaves


a true maple leaf


but my heart is hollow.


 


it just surprises me


that the only impact I'll have on your life


is


 


when: our eyes flit to each other's 


(a meagre effort)


on a train or bus,


a commonality of shared boredom;


 


when: you push


against me on a


pedestrian crosswalk;


 


when: we share the


uncomfortable silence of


riding an elevator 


crouched and cramped.


 


it frightens me to think that if


i walk past you on the street:


all that I am to you is


a mindless body strolling


on another mindless day.
