The Fall (iv) Perhaps

Perhaps

I laid, with chin on the pavement. Time froze.
My trolley got caught on the handrail.
Had I loaded it wrongly? Was it too fast a turn?

I struggled up and sat on the pavement,
Among scattered backpack and trolley and boxes.
Time froze. A few passers-by.  All hurried on.

I got up. And saw blood stains on the pavement.
Perhaps they were all afraid of blood?

電光火石一瞬間,飛出行人路,
下巴著地,嗡的一聲,數分鐘,時光凝住。
拾回眼鏡,呆坐地上,數分鐘,時光凝住。
商場熟食檔有人,行人路上也有人。
但無人發現地上有人。
每個行人都很專注。
還是他們都怕血?
