and post notes and photos about your poem like Gregory R Barden.
we watched a
world weeping blood
one man's heavenly hope
humanity's horror ...
steel like butter, melting
strange birds in stranger air ... flailing
sirens in chorused agony
for those whose voices were silenced
perfect azure vault, stained
with poison ...
breath of ashen brutality
the incense for an evil anointing
a somber search for survivors
for bodies, answers, hope ... for God ...
death screamed at the sky and opened the keep
(truth tumbling into darkness)
two decades down and
it still whispers ...
