Wonderful picture and poem!

A p r o n h e a d -- Lilly

I am shamed.

I have walked by you,

traded shallow pleasantries, ordered my latté,

gone about my daily nothings, oblivious to your darkness,

you who are lost.

I have cared, but not cared,

because you were other.

I have not seen the fire closing in,

the overwhelming helplessness of your predicament,

you the theoretical heretical stranger.

But lost has become intimate.

Lost now has a face and a heart.

And I am lost in the pain and desperation of helpless please-Gods. 

But you . . .you other,

you have been lost all along, and I didn’t even notice.

And it shames me.
