him in the window seat
her pushing the pram
them whispering in a huddle
shifty eyes
facial ticks
chin rubbing
suspicion
mistrust
distrust
obsession
overcoats in the summer
bulges in pockets
sweaty hands
fidgety feet
what is he up to
what is she up to
what are they up to
benefit of the doubt
yeah
tell that to the dead
explain that to the injured
caught in a trap
uneasy
apprehensive 
restless
nervous
all it takes is a moment
or less
and if it happens
when it happens
condolences
thoughts and prayers
solidarity
shoulder-to-shoulder
they will never win
this will never happen again
until it does
again
and again
and again
