Sealed Units

next door they've got new windows

all triple-glazed for noise and heat

hermetically sealed against society

frost and storms designed to beat

 

yet other enemies will get through

invisible demons with wings of fire

I'm looking at that dim lit window

as cold rain struggles to freeze white -
