police accident

they all waited for the ambulance

to retrieve the body we hadn’t seen
while petulant traffic ran as rainwater
into sideroads and people gathered at
front doors & bay windows like condensation
trying to deduce guilt
a measure of the order of things
the way it happened
but the faces held other stories
which we should never have guessed at.
