Only Known By Sight

A walking away today...
Offends.
One not expressing an opinion,
Can create tension.

An eyebrow raised,
May trigger someone embittered...
Into a crazed rage.

And someone deciding to sit in peace,
Increases rumors of a hushed infidelity.
These things and more,
Are occurring in a neighborhood...
Someone only known by sight,
Had to leave to protect their privacy.
