sun petal vessels

& the yellow of your chin

spreading on meadows

( author notes )


this poem is dedicated

to all the poor, poor victims

of the latest terrible thing


the man on the news

said it was absolutely terrible

& who are we to disagree?


social media is abuzz

with heartfelt hashtags

from kind & genuine souls


who can’t help but show everyone

how much they deeply care

about all those affected


so spare a thought & pray

for the ones that terrible, terrible thing

left in a terrible mess
