Scars

I saw a homeless woman
bathe on the street today

She calmly disrobed
as if in a luxury private suite
Scars on display for all to see

The women around me
tutted at the inconvenience of her

How dare she put herself on display

The bus turned the corner
and the conversation returned
to middle class apathy
