Noises in the night by Paul Canon Harris

Noises in the night:
a barking dog,
shouting men,
scream and curse,
a flashing light.

Splintering door,
a crying girl,
don’t move, lie flat,
use the cuffs,
serves the bastard right!

Should have called a year ago,
didn’t want to pry.
A tiff, a row, a full-blown fight?
Hard to tell from noises in the night.
