"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

BROKEN

TAKE  THESE  BROKEN   WINGS

Blackbird   red wings   It was a sky-is-falling

kind of day    Bomb-dived my head    People

stopped and stared   I felt the brush of   bird?

Thought the Angels had come for me

 

shadow of wings   flapping  flapping  airswooosh  near an ear

 

In car on way home radio flipped ON:

Moncton in lockdown (Moncton!)   24 yr.old

gunman on a 30 hr. rampage    3 RCMP slain

 

Later at home tv flipped ON:

Gunman in Seattle siege in progress   live!

student-bodies    everywhere

 

Summertime in the Americas  gentle breezes

The living is easy    Sounds of guns ricochet

Angels dropping like flies
