A petty argument that becomes a canceled trip.
As someone you don't trust takes control.
Shots ring out.
And, the world fractures.
Correlation places the mantel of responsibility on her shoulders.
Had she been there, she could have stopped it.
Babies die in Uvalde.
As she attempts to create a nest for her little chicken to grow in.
And, a newly diagnosed autist takes code switching literally...
Because, it is.
If you understand metaphor...
And, are observant.
And, reality retracts.
A shot rings out.
Falsely accused, only by themselves, the guilty party learns to move safely in the shadows.
And, the children wake up.
In the dark.
