BYSTANDER

I leer

bystander at a wreck

pure curiosity

the moment

involuntary

look away

sneak peak

the moment

so obtuse

so insane

the universe laughs

at such an awkward

affected being

now accepted as normal

once a performer

as a sideshow

freak.

you are too hard on yourself    people want to make sure an accident victim is ok etc

an accident victim

This poem is actually written about my reaction to transexuals.
