Chains of displacement

From the 100 metre exclusion zone
decreed in the court order
he watches the shadows of his former life;

as the doppleganger emerges from his car
pats his dog
greets his children then,
with an arm around his wife
walks toward his house

the chains of displacement
binding him, to an exile
of furtive glimpses into the life
he can never re-enter.
