Chapter 1

His daily commute
Crowds swarm
They don't see
Him trip and fall
Full impact upon the shoulder
He's dislocated it
He doesn't say anything
Uses one arm to shove the other back into place
"Click"

He continues on his way
His eyes look amused
When he sees another do the same thing
And cries out in pain
Nobody helps

Someone trips him
He falls again
Breaks his nose
He faces the person who trips him
Pulls his own nose up and back
Making sure they watch him
"Snap"
"Nice trick" the person says

His destination lies
On the other side of the street
He J-walks
Gets hit by a car
It stops, he flies
He lands with a thud

People go to help him
It is not needed
He sits up
His leg bent off to the side
He pushes it back
And "snap" like it never happened
He breathes out and his ribs
Are back in place
Finally he stands
Head off to the side
Grabs a hold
Jerking his head to the natural position
And everyone hears the loud "crack" his neck makes

He leaves
to get where he needs to go
Everyone else wanders off
And the driver continues on his way

In his office
He emails "destroy them"
and leaves

Down the stairs he slips
Falling down one after another
He breaks
And lies forgotten
In the corner of the city's mind
