Hub of the Cosmos

There is vomit on the sidewalks

And there is blood on the sidewalks
And there are dogs on the sidewalks, lapping at the blood
Slurp
Slurp
Slurp

A homeless man is dead, the police stand vigil
Nobody would have noticed anyway
Black dude, sitting against a fence,
Thin, probably asleep, who could tell
If he was breathing or not

I knew his name
But I didn’t know him
But I knew what he could do
And one time, for no good reason
He helped me

Compassion shouldn’t go unpaid
Debts are a funny thing
Debts are fucking annoying
