This World

As we go
About our days
In this world

We are
Ever aware
Ever vigilant
We look both ways
Before crossing
One-way streets

We consider the likelihood
That a mass shooting might unfold
While we shop for groceries
We scan for exits
Upon entering rooms
With an urgency
Once reserved
For first responders
We do these things

Life is  

While at the same time

Life is
Needing us
To live it
