On Twenty Children Dead in Newtown Connecticut: The Sunday Whirl from Friday

I’m not sure what to write as an introduction to today’s post. We all know it…

The Sunday Whirl blog invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “wordle’s” 12 word.

This week’s words are:
wordle 12-15-12small
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Listen,
Let’s get this right

From the start.
From the top down.
There was
no story here.
It did not
Un-
Fold.
It exploded.
Bang-pop-Bang-pop.
Just-like-that.
Exploded.
Beyond tragic;
Inexplicable.
Beyond tragic;
Beyond words.
Have
No
Misunderstandings.
There is no
Milky Way here.
No spiritual vindication.
No visibility, no light that shines.
No explanations.
No way to lighten it up
No way to make this not suck.

Everybody rushes.
Eveybody’s hurt.
Everybody’s glassy-eyed.

And
they’re
dead.

20 children.
dead.

for what…
