Chemical Attack, Syria, April 2017

Chemical Attack, Syria, April 2017

Walls left
in place and cores of joist
but seeping through the doors
of perception a fog of more than war, that takes
all space, all time–no place can escape
one’s skin, no line stand long
between lungs, breath; no barricade bar
this death.


For April and Real Toads prompt by Bjorn Rudberg on space time.  Heartbreaking what is happening. 

Drawing mine, based on Goya.

    Bearing witness to the spacetime’s collapse–here as the gas which disrupts ever border of sanctuary –is what you accomplish here. Gods help us.

    a fog of more than war, that takes
