An anguished wail, lost
Into a night silent.
And we laugh,
Unknowing, ignorant, unconcerned.

A bright flame, flickers,
Falters and fails.
And life goes on,
Sturdy, resilient, pragmatic.

A shy smile, pure is mocked,
Stifled and scarred.
And platitudes dutiful,
Drown, dissociate, disown.

An anger brave, into streets
Pours, ready to tear, maim, demand.
And we at a distance, sigh,
Secure, safe, cocooned.
