Gunshots

There are gunshots going off

at the end of Morley Street.

It is dark outside and

the echoes are loud,

hollow and hard like

breaking ice, or metal.

Bas assures us it is a

car exhaust, revving and

popping ‘round the corner.

But we are quiet and nervous,

close the blinds and hide

behind the curtains.
