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!
Summertime in the Americas gentle breezes
The living is easy Sounds of guns ricochet
Angels dropping like flies
