The Crack


Between every waft and gust
You could hear a crack
of voices of men & women, 
as they carry their children 
despite the split and bang. 

Every waft carries to you 
the husky voices while humming
songs from time of liberty
despite every rift and jag.

You would crack for a moment 
but you would go on with your life
and they will still twist a tear 
for each gust and crack.
