Scarcity

IMG_0291_1Two sets of them:

thieves in the neighborhood

at 2 A.M.

Thieves testing every door

looking for unlocked cars, sheds, basements,

things left outside, things unattended

looking for the slip-ups, the mistakes

looking for the careless, the forgetful, the unaware,

like water on the roof

seeking any crack in its path down.

 

These predators angle for weakness

hunting for a pay-back, a paycheck,

hunting for what they will never find

here.
