Look Who Didn’t Sleep (Day Three)

What quiet people see
When the group forgets to talk to us,
We watch lovers make beauties at the back of the sad-eyed would be’s
Good men slight the good women and girls who nod accepting normality
Silent power struggles over territory and space of a man with looks between sips
High school love 4ever mashing to grit after a new boy with curls
The squeaks, prayers, longing, girls pulling down their shirts to hide the new fat
Conversation where carpet patterns contain life’s codes
And the other quiet people just looking around.
