In Kabul

Nine hundred twenty dead

Early counting

Now over a thousand

In Kabul

x

The Taliban has asked

With urgency

For aid

The people in the city

Are receiving help

From local sources

People, groups

And from outside Afghanistan

Organizations

Other nations

So many dead

The faithful will mourn

Accept

The will of God

While they mourn

Weeping in Ramah

Weeping in Ramah

 

Indonesia

At Sulawesi

In Palu

Hundreds have been carried away

Souls from bodies

The living weep

They bury who can be recovered

They mourn

 

Might we change the pronoun,

Might we mourn?

They are our sibling hearts

The family

That lost too many children

To vicissitudes

In nature’s anger

Our indifference

 

Rachel weeps in Ramah

Because Babylon has taken

Her children away

Our children

Notte

Notte

 

Italian night

 

In Umbrio, in Amatrice

At six-point-two—and now

Rest is something

Else

 

It is what remains

After all has

Fallen and a

Victim people

Try to rise

 

Nature has

Split the nation

 

We must go there

To reach into

Rocks and

Open earth

 

To remove

Into airy day

Those who must

Exhale still

In order to

Remove or rebuild

 

Notte bianca o in bianco,

In sleepless night
