“You’re probably wondering why I’m wearing sun glasses”
My neighbour says me to me
In the way she looks away from my eyes
She knows I am the one who calls the cops
She has too
Who else would?
Who else can hear the thuds of her body against the floor of their apartment?
The tears loudly sobbed
The silent screaming whimpers that travel down the radiator pipes to my bathroom
“I’m getting sick of supporting your pathetic ass, you stupid bitch”
She has to know it’s me
“It is just too bright out today”
I say in the way I hold the door open for her
When we both move our lips
Only an awkward “Hi”comes out
