Sharp

Someone put a razor blade
on the sidewalk,
sharp side facing out
into the road. Two bicyclists
stood aside their bikes,
staring down at the
blade. They threw
some pebbles over the
walkway and biked on.
I took one step forward
and my heel tore open.
I lifted my foot and a
rock greeted me,
digging into my skin,
before falling down with
a drop of blood
lagging behind.
