Shipwreck

Angels make their hope here

on this struggling planet

of refugees and school shootings.

Why do they persist?

Because they’re angels.

How can they not weep for us?

*

Today the radio sent me

back to Sandy Hook.

Twenty children, six adults

Shot

And before Adam Lanza

entered that school,

he shot his mother.

*

What happened next?

*

Alex Jones of Infowars

told his listeners

that the shooting was staged

A government conspiracy

to take Americans’ guns away.

*

Grieving families were harassed.

Told that their children had been seen

Alive.

*

Will Mr. Jones have something to say

about the Russians bombing

a maternity hospital?

*

Oh, angels, do you have words

for this insanity?

I don’t.

Do you have hope?

Help for us.  Hope for us.

We are foundering.
