Quiet From Above

It’s so quiet from above seeing the houses placed below
Shoeboxes lined up one by one like stepping stones in a row

I see a few glowing portals signaling life from within
But the window panes are thick and the curtains haven’t worn thin

Families next to families separated by fences and brick walls
Each living side by side
Dark and separate, barely inhabited at all
