Day 131 – even the doves; Locked…

Day 131
6:12 pm

even the doves

where there are guns,
there is war,
a constant war,

where guns are not held by
holsters, but ever so tightly,
by fear

where there is death of a
child at the hands of another,
there is shock above all else

even the eyes of the doves
are too dry to help sorrow
break us into peace

tkk

Locked in the moment

We are past
Issued statements,
Flags at half-mast,
Interviews with former
Classmates and teachers

The moment has
Passed

Yet we are sustained
Within it

We wish to be before
All of it

In
Meeting

In
Shouting

In
Reckoning
With the
Before
The choking
Of the
Silence of
Now
