A Blue Scooter

Today I saw a blue scooter
(In India, this is a scooter)
That brought back a memory
And a little piece of history
My first day in New Delhi
Off the train and on the crazy
Roads reeking of April heat
So hot, it would make a mosquito retreat
Packed sticky sweaty sad
In an auto rickshawed by a wee lad
I can see it clearly as we went
A blue scooter on the left pavement
At first I couldn't fully see
The man with the bloodied mangled body
I turned my eyes away from broken body to broken scooter
I wish I could remember something better
When I spot a blue scooter
