Three light bulbs

Three lightbulbs
one snaps
feeling fully heated
leaving splinters of glass
touching the heals
of the busy feet
stomping by.

A piece slips within their skin
leaving the slightest of impact
and droplets of blood
and the feet
although scarred
they kept going
they kept running.

The lightbulb
simply replaced
quickly erased
the mark
of the over heated light bulb
slowly vanishes
and the shards of glass
they were swept up
taken out
and the reason
remains unknown.

The feet are often to busy walking
to catch a dim light
before it flickers
before it explodes
after they’re to busy
to ask why
rather they sweep the pieces
replacing the broken
and rationalizing
that an over heated bulb
is destined to explode.

Although had they stopped
and allowed their eyes to open
they could have untwisted the bulb
before the mess able to occur
and prevented the pain
that accompanies an explosion.

Thanks for reading.
