Two lives were taken overnight,
their bodies left along my transit route.
I was annoyed at the inconvenience,
until I was ashamed of my annoyance.
We are fragile.
We too easily bow to our familial human stain.
We too easily see reality only through our eyes,
setting aside other eyes and other lives.
Two lives taken,
their bodies left for others to find,
a horror left for others to see.
