THE SHATTERING (Head-Lines)




---Bomb Kills At Least 32 At Busy Market In Nigeria---

The shattering of glass
The shattering of stone
The shattering of silence
The shattering of bone

Terror’s done enough

---An explanation for why Turkey fans appeared to boo minute’s silence for Paris attack victims---

We distract ourselves with such dismal assumptions,
Lazy enough, just crazy enough,
Rage and fear have little time to spare…

---32 US Governors Refusing or Opposing Syrian Refugees---

Thirty-two, nice and even,
Refugees, no time for grieving,
Governors, refuse their breathing,
Fear is the worst kind of leader…
