Dog eyed 11

Remember it is always ordinary things:
Brush your teeth
Say your prayers
Eat your sandwich
Comb your hair

Something in her head pops
Like faulty wiring in the attic
Triggering a deadly
Fire

The rules are simple
But hard-won
Painful
Like a land war in Asia:

Don’t engage
Don’t make eye contact
Pretend the person screaming obscenities
Has a mute function you can control

Pardon, me
You think
Pardon me for caring
