corner sitters
hands held out
beseeching eyes
seem to shout

you pass by
you don’t see
averting eyes
is your key

you drive past them
like they’re not there
ignoring eyes
you haven’t a care

you walk by them
standing alone
downcast eyes
stare at your phone

you don’t know
all that was lost
tearful eyes
mirror their cost

so when you see
them standing there
searching eyes
have a care
