into the dirty street

it draped, hung from his
rocking shoulders
the silent sobs
fell into the city street
like waves of heat
everyone shied away
turned their back
avoided inviting the cruel pain
into their own hearts

he sat alone
comforted by nothing
time stood still as he
felt the shock
imagined it over and over
each time he gasped
tears no long stung,
they just fell

into the dirty street
