NONE OF MY BUSINESS

Their fight drifted to me
carried in the wind;
like gnats I couldn’t swat away
their words hovered at my ears.
bastard useless I.knew.it mistress
She swung her arm, he caught it
She kicked his shin, he lashed out;
a lightningquick fist in her belly.
The wind blew my shout backward
alarming the dozing man behind me.
