Curfew

From the window
They saw crippling evening
A curfew setting in
Wide lanes blocked
Heaped with the tongues
That once questioned
Streaming of life ceased
Obscuring the lanterns
Hunger and thirst
Positioned in the bullet tray
Cries in series followed
Off the muzzle
The wooden faces
Gagged the yellings
Applauding the shots
Normalising the unnormal
