question

23 Feb

some country made from dust was bombed
some people wearing robes were shred by nails and bolts
expectorated by falling projectiles launched from flying machines
some trains derailed and people died
the more people died the more trains derailed
the more trains derailed the more vividly they existed
in the papers
on the flat screens
on the electronic wires
in our lives
the outlets chatter of everything except the habitual
we let the routine carry us
it doesn’t seem to pose a threat
we live it without thinking
it carries neither questions nor answers
some country made from dust was raped
some commuter prop plane overshot the runway
the Croatian student who came to America looking for her dream
was found in a plastic bin behind a strip mall in Murfreesboro Tennessee
