Haiku #450: Sleepless Knight (on bus)

This must be God’s way of constantly reminding me of just how close I was to the egde because as soon as I sat down on the bus Eye Spy’d yet another sleepless Knight.

They are street warriors – some attracted to the freedom of existing outside of our rules, some forced outside of the lines we’ve drawn to ensure that every man and woman can be alienated the instant they can’t recover from a fall. AND all of them sleepless, though sleeping where they can.

and I cannot sleep
knowing that they lie awake,
with their eyes wide shut.
