“Still”

There is a robin
at the window.

The minutes
are slow.
Too many
places to go.

There is rain
on the ledge.

Soft, gentle
drops tap.
Causing energy
to sap.

There is a girl
sitting down.

Legs held down
like lead.
Tummy aching
and unfed.

Exhaustion
is watching her.

Living
is hard.
Visible candor
without a guard.

She doesn’t
move.
