If only he’d screamed, cried, or lamented

I’m suddenly disturbed by the awareness that
everybody feels

I’m suddenly feeling unsettled about
the fact that humans can feel

All just because of some song that
acknowledged it,

that stated it like-
no, it didn’t even state it.

It brushed past it making a different
It assumed it! It

didn’t even notice.
