Aftermath

Aftermath

(Matthew)

 

There is a square

Upon the

Ground

That has no sides

 

There were

Three walls more

Like pillars, a

Doorway, and more

 

There was life, and

I could name each

Part: mother,

Daughter,

Neighbor child,

Love

 

Spry forms that

I could see

And touch; now

None

Remains

 

I’ve come back to

The place

 

I heard it had

A name;

I no longer care

The Unforgiven

The Unforgiven

(over three hundred now)

 

Matthew kills

Two hundred eighty

In the place that Papa

Doc abused

Where the recent

Legacy of earthquake

Leaves homes

Waiting to rise

For five years’ passing

 

On toward Florida,

This is not

The succession of an

Apostle but the

Random naming of

A storm

That, anonymous,

Would rise and fall,

Slam and flood, beat and

And take the

Breathing from too

Many enfleshed

Fragile souls
