Damn Politics

a phone found me
a friend rang
run to the news
she said
it’s raining people

thank God no camera
was close up
yet my imagination
had Hubble-like zoom

with Tower two
my heart fell
with Tower one
the constitution

thousands of people
plundered
ten thousand lives
jump cut

and my instant
prayer unedited
went not to a soul
just departed

my missive
to anything Holy
begged for our
children’s children

damn politics
but if you do that
politics will damn you

with Tower two
my heart fell
with Tower one
the constitution
