Another Night Headed Home

A poem by Sydney Reffeitt, senior English Education Major


Her keys jingle-jangle,

Ever so persistent,

Watching every move

She does

Or doesn't see

And she draws

Her own weapon

Of sorts,

This jingle-jangle

That signals

A warning cry

To enemies unknown

For She knows not

Who lurks

In the shadows

Or even hides

In plain sight

And you complain

And groan

And roll your eyes

Over the volume

Of the jingle-jangle

As she takes each step,

Yet you know


The fear behind

Those darting eyes

And her racing heart

And the beads of sweat

Forming on her brow

As she searches for safety

In a locked vehicle

To finally go home

And so

The keys jingle-jangle,

Ever so persistent
