A Day Of Life
3 January, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


In her face he screams
Finger pointed
In guarded stance she listens
Argument, infuriates

Seagulls flock for morsels
A child is throwing
Remnants of an uneaten lunch
Un-wasted, devoured

Sitting in the parking lot radio blaring
Reality hidden
Tired of being used she rebels
Quietly, observing

Opening her trunk, filling it near full
She's finished
Bundles packs she drives away
Chores completed

Cars rush by hurrying to nowhere
Speeding, he's late
Brakes squeal as clashing metal grinds
Painful, recognition

Daylight scurries by as nighttime nears
Another day finished
Tired and relaxed he rests a front the TV
Snoring softly
