Somewhere it is Raining

CW: descriptions of  traumatic situations


and a man is molesting a young boy

somewhere, a mother of two teenage girls
is staring at the biopsy report
            gravity    giving way to terror

and somewhere, someone’s only child,
well, U know how it goes with Fentanyl.

But outside our window
night has landed softly
and at last 
U are sleeping 
ur chest rising and falling 
like U swallowed the tide 

and though muscles protest
I do not move, for fear of waking U

somewhere it is raining 

but not here.
