#3: The Man Who Talks to Invisible People

This one scanned weird...

Text reads:

“In the city there’s a man, and he watches people walk.

He sits atop the streetlamps and the bus stops where they talk.

He listens to the faceless, to the lonely and ignored,

the ones who sleep in shabby, hidden corners of the world.

Life is like a waking dream, and more so for the fact

that sometimes if he talks to them, they’ll even answer back.”

I do a lot of walking around the city and I see a handful of homeless people everyday, and I always ignore them. And then I start thinking about how terrible it must be to be in such a huge city with so many people and not be acknowledged by so many of them. But I still ignore them, and if there’s one thing I’m not proud of about myself it’s that I’m too scared to do that “be the change you wish to see in the world” thing. So I guess #3 is maybe some sort of expression of that confusion.
