What if each time
you caused pain
a small, round stone
was put in your pocket
pebbles for inducing
osmium for death.
When you heard
someone approach
their pockets noisy
you’d know,
just like dogs do:
to keep distance.
Some men
would pull wagons
behind them,
their pants disfigured.
They’d be shamed
from sidewalks
delayed at customs,
they could never
lie flat on beds. 
They’d have
to stand feeling
the weight of
what they’d done.
