i know you hear their crimson cries
they screech
from the depths of your dark roast
froth surfacing in your mug

louder than your flat screen
news with nancy at nine
turn-that-down
it's-horrible-what's-happening

but to you
horrible
sounds like

i-have-to-cancel
my-week-is-shot
i’m-just-so-busy
that you walk through a child’s dead mother
with no more than a shudder

shot
bombed
that test
blown so out of proportion

that debris
soars like a missile
landing on innocent backs
ironic that
that’s all they see of us
