Toppled Over [ A “Reverse” Poem ]

I look at him
Fallen
Landed below me
Cold concrete buckled beneath
He is injured
Disfigured
Body mangled by impact
Face distorted from recognition
Not the man I knew any longer;
Or maybe
I knew all along
Pretended he was different
And the dying being
I see is not him,
but childhood faith
