After Bad News

I gird
myself after
hearing devastating
tidings, sniff the gardenias,
go on.

Christopher T. George

I write this now in the aftermath of the bloody bombings of this morning in London tube stations and on board a double-decker bus that was sliced open as if by a can opener. London was just yesterday awarded the 2012 Olympics and yet human life on earth remains a five ring circus.


Out them!
They come tumbling.
Words! You know what I mean.
I never sought them, but, yes, here
they are.
