Willow patterned plate
pieces strewn at random
cover the kitchen floor
dinner sticks to the wall
the target ducked

Curses loud harsh angry
yelled through the window
at a back in fast retreat
safe out of sight
wait for sleep

Creep in at midnight
wash gravy from walls
mop floor pick up
broken dreams
into the trash

Breakfast is so normal
its scary.
