Smoke, still rising from that yet
Warm and awesome mound.
Two THOUSAND souls, now gray, dry, flakes;
Residue, tossed in the wind, brushed aside
As if it were nothing, those who once
Laughed, breathed, talked, cried – SCREAMED!
One doesn’t need to have known
Them to bow one’s head and murmur
A prayer. Let me stand with the Wailing Women:
I am so sorry for your most *grievous death!
