Two Days After the Shooting

A poem

Two days after the shooting

In my apartment, the cats are all asleep,
curled into quiet balls of fur,
sometimes stretching, covering eyes with paws.

The ceiling fan spins an artificial breeze
while outside a chilly wind
rattles loose pieces of siding, shakes the trees.
