THE VICTIMS

She had fled their home
With her two toddlers
When he roared in fury
"Three are to many for me."
While wildly sharpening
his new hunting knife.

In the twilight
and the minimal safety
of this strange place,
she hugs her children
and stares over their heads
into a cold and dark
Cull de sac.
