Las Vegas

Icy branches
Crack in rhythm
Snap, pop, pop.
Laughing limbs swing
Unawares.
Hate strikes.
Bodies 
Lie crumpled.
Eagles soar
Then dive.
Stiffened wings are
Vultures carrion.
Bodies lie
Trampled,
Insides torn outside.

    Blessings and congratulations on your win, Kathleen - nicely done! I have found so much beauty, catharsis and healing in writing (and reading) dark poetry - going to those places in my spirit where those dark things lay is not easy, but taking those experiences and hurts and turning them to something beautiful, (poetry), contains SO much power in healing and purging those negativities. Keep up the great work - we will change peoples' minds about "dark" subject matter! :-)

    Concise but profound comment on the brutality of humanity, Kathleen! Janice

    Good to see you posting again, Kathy...albeit concerning such a tragedy! Why do they feel so compelled to do it....and why are guns and ammunition so readily available? Your poem, like the killing bullets, makes a powerful and shocking impact!! Not a pleasant subject to write about but it is important that someone, like yourself, does so; only by confronting evil can we hope to finally overcome. My very warmest regards as always, Kathy. Your friend. :) john P.s Nice to see you back!
