The World

Somewhere houses burn down,

With babies inside.

Somewhere children shoot shop-clerks

Caught on camera.

Mothers prostitute themselves, suffocate their daughters;

But I wish that place weren’t here.

This young man attends my high school; perhaps I've asked him to tuck in his shirt... We discussed plagiarism & senseless violence today. I see the video. Enlarged. I'm numb.
