Google Bus Line and Homeless Guy

There was a homeless guy face down on the sidewalk right next to the Google bus line on 24th Street. Everybody was just walking past him or ignoring him as they peered into their smart phones. I walked past too but turned around and went back. I tapped him on the shoulder, “Man, are you OK?” He looked up and grunted. He seemed alright. Perhaps I should have done more, called somebody, but who? but feeling too tied up with my own problems. The Google line; the collapsed homeless guy – could there be a more poignant portrait of our times?
