“The Leg in Question”

‘It makes a statement… I think.’ She spoke as she circled the prosthetic leg that stood on the sidewalk next to the busiest intersection in the city.

‘Yeah, but what?’ He shrugged.

‘That’s the question, now, isn’t it?’ She smiled as he stepped off the curb.

    • I had a hard time thinking of a title. Well, in all honesty, I had a hard time coming up with something… I just kept looking at the pic and thinking it had to stand for something…

    • I added that event as an afterthought, so glad it worked out okay. Rough write this week, all could think was that the leg had to stand for something… maybe it was a warning to watch your step..

  1. Perhaps it does “stand” for something. Wouldnt that be an interesting form of public art/protest, for example, against not having accessible crosswalks, signals and timing, so that a disabled person can cross safely? Imagine the city littered with prostheses at dangerous intersections! I like it!
