the appalling freedom of blindness

Poem by Jovan Vuksanovich

the appalling freedom of blindness

bleating rush hour horns 
bumper to bumper claustrophobia
 nervous cars

anxious trucks 
inching round corners make believe as real
 sidewalks
crowded with never ending streams of city somnambulists 
mute plate glass
windows reflecting random strangers lost in reflex humdrum 
the nothing
wheel spinning spinning its dreary din
as a bloodied sun slumps below the bruised horizon
 no rare face stands out
from the crowds
 only the all too common on all sides 
followers following
followers
 fools fools fools in habitual succession
nowhere to flee
 nowhere to hide
burn
 burn 
burn 
you lonely wanderer
 this weary sunset is just the beginning of
a long long night
