Listen,
Shhh,
A cry in the night,
Too afraid to move but too afraid for flight.

Listen,
Shhh,
Silent tears for the day,
Cover-up and sunglasses is her secret way.

Listen,
Shhh,
An unlicensed gun,
An explosion of repression,
No pleasure,
No fun.

Listen,
Shhh,
Warm blood splattered deep,
Dyed hair and too many secrets to keep.

Listen,
Shhh,
The sirens are coming,
Tides sweeping away from here to nothing.

Listen.
