Muffled rumors

and, why did you cry
when you saw that cute little girl
in the TV commercial?
She was laughing and happy,
but you cried.
In these bumbling years of ours,
never would you talk about being a kid.
But someone who knew
told, in a monotone,
about closets
locked from the inside,
and fist-sized holes in the walls.
