Who are you?

Designer bag over the shoulder

Heels that Must hurt

clickety clack running on the sidewalk

hailing a cab

late for work

determined look

fierce and independent

slamming into a man with no home

Still running for the cab

lost it

Not stopping to say

“excuse me, so sorry”

No worries for others

No “good morning”

No smile Just


to make that



no care for a fellow person

that was standing in her way

wondering at the end of the


where that paycheck went

doesn’t matter

not one dollar would have gone

to someone who

needed it
