The Cry

by m. e. roach

blind and unable to hear

the world is crying

 

the baby, backseat, haunting eyes

silence

mom’s on her cell

 

the old man, curb, cardboard sign

silence

pedestrians look away

 

the little girl, rumpled bed, fishnet tights

silence

the madam slams the door

 

the little boy, school, nerdy glasses

silence

the teacher ignores the bully

 

the bully, home, black eye

silence

the angry father shoves him again
