Bulletproof Part 2

And, in early morning,
before the suburb rightly wakes,
a shot is fired
straight into the law.
When cars arrive
to learn for the day, there is tape
and blue-and-white cars mark the place
where safety cannot go just yet.
First impressions: a colleague mentions
ISIS, and though
a wry smile suggests irony,
beneath the comment lies the knowledge
that possibility has burst its banks
and each day may hold
the unthinkable.
