There are Magnifying Glasses Everywhere

A man crouches low
over a flaw
in the sidewalk. Legs
flail like arms
from a center spot.

The man examines the bug
until his lens begins to burn,
but it's only when
a passerby steps on the creature
that the man cries out,
his voice curdling
the name of his father.
