Catch Some Wide Eye

Screeches

i can’t pretend that i’m okay
that the neighbors can’t hear
that when i go out to get the mail
i can’t even make eye contact

maybe they think i am like him
i am like her
screaming like two angry birds
i don’t want to be rude
but as they screech and pummel
and toss their feed
i can’t help but get angry
outraged at the slaughter of the silence
disgraced at the rape of peace

there is no quiet in this heart home
no, there is no quiet heart in this home
