train of thought

the man runs towards me
shouting

the pavement is talking to me
the traffic lights are talking to me
the street is talking to me

and i ask the street
did you see this man

and the asphalt and concrete
reply

we may just know
why
this man

ran towards you
only
before we reply

let us tell you
how lonely
we are

and i said
no

i don't think
i can

and ran off
myself

shouting
to another man
