Time-lapse

Time-lapse

in the park across the street

from the hospital.

Fallen pink blossoms

litter the grass

like crumpled Kleenex.

Clouds swirl and sweep

across the perfect half dome of sky.

 A woman chases her toddler son,

pushes him down hard.

“I’m not laughing”, she shouts.

Neither is he.

Bird calls and sirens

drown out the boy’s cries.
