A Sound Poem

I will never understand
how they walk
in tune with the jangle
of your chains
and drum their fingers
to the beat of your heart
yet never look you in the eye,
treating your cries
as nothing more
than a modified,
flawed silence.
Perhaps they are afraid
that your pain
will awaken
their souls
and that
would be very bad
for business.
