Is Empathy on the Rise?

4 October 2012

This is part of  the Urban Scrawl post

Fork Glide

Tongue Slide

Curious eyes

walk by walk by

BUT I STOP

Hands in Hands

and eyes on eyes

the urban artery pulses us through

while backpackers fly

BUT I STOP

Camera lens shy

airconditioners hum some

dusty window scum

coffee machines staem

curb side angel muffin dreams

BUT I STOP

I am the urban scrawl hunter

I can hear the bricks chanting and the

skies choirs

coded language on the cobblestone

anecdotal fire flys

swimming through rivers of zombie eyes

Cruising by   rusing by    running by

BUT I STOP

AND guess what?

from the traces of our beginnings

homo sapien minds

they drew pictures with candlelight

testimonies in caves

Now

we  are the age of renegades

and empathies upon empathies

like the bricks of skyscrapers

rise and rise and rise

inside the heart

of the urban scrawl hunter
