Blink

4d020e78751512ca71b18ac0ecdf58b2

In the blink of a camera’s eye

Stop-action framed murders

Mother and child

 

Hung from bridge

Like meat in a cold locker

Arms at sides like moths

 

Pressed between slides

Microscoped to validate

Ritual rule – the mob

 

Pinned in a camera’s lens

Crazed, glazed opinions

Suspended stars and stripes

 

From a bridge too far

Necks of reason and tolerance

Snapped on the end of hope
