72 hours of silent questions

on top of the green mushroom hedge, uncertainty lay prostrate

from within the nearby field, miller's gopher allows one eye to peek

a male goldfinch snuggles inside red dawn cover

the neighbor in apartment c looks both ways, then cracks open another beer

eastside sunbathers are instantly on high alert

a mother again screams bloody expletives

claws ripped through the children's flesh

the police photographer is now visible, framing the evidentiary

it's 3 a.m.: two hours past 12 noon
