standing at the window

with a book in my hands

I watched all of you

get out of the car

counted children and adults

marveled at how so many

fit in such a small space

but the amount of screaming

that speaks of practiced

controlled rage

I wonder

if you’re going

to make it


how little

you care

about if they’re

going to make it
