to the street person i passed while driving by on my way to life…

i know why you wear a hooded
coat in scorching summer
heat and why
you mumble to yourself to
drown the sounds of hurried
streets and why
you shuffle facing down avoiding
eye to eye, no words to
speak and why
you carry ragged treasures close to
heart to feel
complete. i know why.
you have my deepest empathy for
we lost souls collide more often
than we know…yes i know why
it’s not because you’re cold.
