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
