"written in memory of those killed in San Bernardino CA, 12/2/15"
fourteen whimpers slicing the wind
twenty-two scarred monuments
fear in my fingernails
innocence shot scattered
platitudes like too many moons to count
And tenderness, damaged goods—the baby
despair and despair
the childless father
—still, a baby!
