*** [would you notice a quiet man reading]

would you notice a quiet man reading
an engraved plaque on the backrest
of each memorial bench he passes by?

would you wonder if he feels guilty
or even just sorry that he can still hear
the screams of gulls hunting titbits?

would you imagine a man walking past
a bench with a plaque on it, still without
the name engraved in his weary gaze?
