burglary

burglary (a sequence)

after the burglary
I water our peace lilys
after the burglary

unable to turn the landing lightoff..

after the burglary
the wind is a scary sound

days after the burglary
my mind still noting
the number plates of vans in our area..

after the burglary
every evening
checking and rechecking the locks

after the burglary
discussing compassion
with my 10 year old

morning after the burglary
my daughter's piano exam
talking to the police

I find I have repeated
the same sentence thrice..

burglar alarm -
my children excited
