Misdemeanours

We’re other people’s
Misdemeanours,
A crime that goes
Unnoticed,
The drunken fights
Of strangers,
A maze
Of unwritten motives,
Babies wailing,
Families disappearing,
The hurricane chaos
Of children,
A let down
Writ large,
A month
Of freshly unearthed
Disappointments,
Suburbs separated
With sorrow,
The serial bellow
Of questions,
An evening
Of huge hollow eyes.
