SUPERFICIAL WOUNDS
(7/20/18)

they die
across
the world

they die
across town

they die
in our
homes

they die
in our
arms

significant
tragedies
all

some
of the remaining
never recover
from such
passings

but the
body
collective
hardly misses
a beat

there are
things
to be done

death
has no power
over society's
schedule

we dust
the dead
from our shoes

walk on
