POEM: "Going Home"

Going Home

The day security cameras
that caught her carelessly
knocking over someone else's
parked and rusted bicycle
and just speeding away
also caught someone else
walking a bike (apparently)
very much the wrong way
in a wrong lane too slowly
thinking about the busted chain
the recent unexpected prize
all the favourable reviews
of his compassionate first book
"...true to our difficult age"
and to neither one were
any sanctions applied
spring now salting new
growth on pruned trees 
the day security cameras
switched off for the night.
