An Announcement

We are,

 

the echoes of a large sound

rippling across a vast

emptiness.

 

sagging tits

of 17 children

a broken home

and a stone.

 

two dreadlocks

duty bound and defiant

forgotten in an unmarked

grave.

 

magic water

sprinkled on bodies

defying metal

bullets.

 

six tweets

a flood of abuse

and sleepless

nights.

 

3 dead bodies

a chapel

and an empty parking spot.

 

the ripple of a bullet

3 dead bodies

and indifference.

 

a voice speaking

hear its own

silence.

 

a breaking of that silence,

 

here.
