LESS STANDING BY

My more nobel resolution . . .

Spectators
J.B. Rowell


papery pings
against glass
against blinds
ladybugs find
way in
not out

dry shells
found on
white carpet
or bathroom
windowsill so
near yet

children used
to tiny
carnage open
front door
set free
to drop

lone travels
along molding
keep going
to return
at start

many manage
to enter
rectangle on
kitchen ceiling

see into
mass grave
we flip
the switch

we watch
from bed
we stand
by
