And the crying man

Photo by the author, Mark Tulin

when you feel the pain
inside a crying stranger
but remain silent

an invisible hand guides you
away from kindness —
poverty can’t be taken seriously

walk on by without regret
into the comfort
of your privileged class

rid yourself of eyesores
in one strong espresso —
ignore the world’s strife…
