A Broken View

Pieces of broken glass
Scattered across a sidewalk
A black window frame, bent and broken
Pieces of a view, shattered

As I step over it all
I see the sky on the ground
Reflections from above
Wondering what had happened

Clear shapes cover the grass
Bits of metal, bent into a pose
I was waiting for blood
I expected to see a body
