Trying to not get killed? 

At which ever every next juncture?

Don’t think that much. Look right

before you cross, even if white is all you see. Step back before the train arrives. The platform might move

waiting for the signal to cross, while you reward one another with a dozen seconds’ worth of attention 

So don’t wear them on a day of brisk walking. Exhaustion is your fuel. Drink juice, so you have some backup

in a city of bodies turned to numbers 

you must know the epicenter

and circumference

of shock

and shot
