to all of those with happy homes

i walked past you
we shuffled four feet in the street
my eyes were downcast
so i saw your shoes
absorbing the impact
i noticed your wife
your children
your happy existence
i walked past
life sojourns down an awkward path
i reach for things and put them back
i sense death too much
i feel pain/so what
the world is a wound
