A Question After The Incident - Poem by Jahan zaib
Standing beside an open window,
Peeped into an empty room,
A dog I saw, aware awaken,
Hungry it looked,
The door banged open, a child entered,
In hands something like food,
Walked in front of the hungry dog,
Walked until reached to window,
He smiled at me,
A sharp turn he took, at me did he look,
I cried standing there, he would not hear,
Went out close the door behind,
Why did the dog not bark? Why did it not notice?
If not the child, at least the smell of food?
Was the dog blind or the child invisible?
