They fall.

The deaf will not hear the crash.
They won’t hear the cries or the blood curling screams.
Instead, they will see the smoke.
The clouds of dust.
The people, running for their lives, realizing that from here on, everything is going to change.

The blind will not see the crash.
They won’t see the bodies, the people trying to escape even though there’s nowhere to go.
Instead, they will hear the pleas.
The people, as they shriek for help.
The fall, and the second of silence before the truth hits the mind.

And some people, some people won’t hear or see anything at all.
Because they are at the top.
And when the middle is hit, the top goes down.
And so does anything in it.
Because that’s just the way it is.
