crossing

By Mike O’Connell
they ask permission
from invisible companions
(drifting just beyond)
if it’s ok to cross the street
watching a machine
across way
for a sign
for the digital robot
to begin its journey
across the screen
feezing traffic before
they cross
suspending time
silent before the breeze
bypassing fear
unaware of wondering
eyes shaded empathetic
sympathetic wondering what
it must be like to live in a fog
to stand still in the high waters
of reality and still get to their
destinies
(the children ogle as the
bus drifts away
