Frame of Mind

Gunshots ring

outside my window but

no big deal, I live by

a sportmen’s club and

they routinely practice

firing rounds

less than a mile away from

where I sleep

and shower

and it’s a funny thing

how perspective

can frame the mind

to where I can be

conditioned to see

something like

hearing gunfire as typical

and safe everyday business

but for some, it

means the end of the world,

outside their windows,

right there and

right then.
