Dangerous Compassions


The apartment complex has been insane today. I would be tempted to wonder if it’s a full moon. It’s like some critical mass has been reached, and violence is the result. We just listened to someone screaming at their child over and over again, “What the fuck were you thinking?” It was scary. Earlier, a grown man was threatening to beat a teen boy for some disrespect and used the n word. The yelling lasted a long time. Maybe these two events are related.

At any rate, it’s a difficult environment for scoring standardized tests. We would really, really like to move.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
