OSI prompt #99: Chaos

Say It Isn’t So

Vehicles crashed

and worlds turned upside down –

took pictures of the truck

but not the man.

How is it possible to forget

something like that?

Who died?

We don’t know him.

Do we need a lawyer?

Why did the insurance agent

touch me like that?

Do we report this, that?

Who really wants to help

because they care?

Or is it just about money?

Who can we talk to…

this town is so small

there is nowhere to turn

that feels safe,

especially that intersection.

They have tallied everyone’s pain.

They say it is worth this much.
