They are lost in darkness,
and can see only the night.
No one sees them,
as they are in shadow.
No one notices, because,
we only see. that which does not
disturb our lives.
Then, when something happens,
they say, I didn't notice.
'I didn't notice',
that's like trying to cross a busy street
without a traffic signal.
When hit by the car,
They remark,
Where did that come from?
Didn't you see the cars?
No, I wasn't looking.
Yesterday and today--
same thing.
