the invisible people

It took an hour to walk those streets home
and on the way I saw
where I was without the illusion
of middle class comfort and pretense

We say hello as we pass each other by
and smile,
nod in recognition
of our shared position

I see some of us sitting
in awkward places
with no proper seat
heads hanging in defeat

and not
even in
the shade

just there
they ran
out of steam.

I’m not there
I think to myself
but I get it

I wonder where
they were going
before they just
gave up?
