Somewhere Else -04/11/2013


He used the L word.

Somewhere a smart bomb,
inexplicably fizzles out,
falling harmlessly from the sky.

The same moment,
a poachers rifle jams,
then back fires,
as a politician gets a flat tire.

A ticket inspector winks and lets,
some single mother go.

The fire alarm triggers in an office
for no apparent reason.
They all evacuate,
and get the rest of the day off.

The kid finds her long missing
brick of lego
needed to finish
the latest creation.

As the television 
is switched off
in finality and disgust.

and the woman
who heard the word

smiles right up to her eyes.
