October 2, 2017–Day two #OctPoWriMo

October 2, 2017

Today I hang on electrons
try to remember which former students practice medicine in Vegas
which friends may have mentioned a holiday, tickets to a concert

Today it is hard not to hate
those who put profits before lives
those who owe powerful positions to manufacturers of machines of death
those who feed fear 

Today I cry for islands in ruins
destroyed by greed
even before the winds arrived

Today I cry for joy cut short
Today, once more, the music died

  1. Yes, all of this. I wish our words could change it all.

  2. Las Vegas, Puerto Rico, Tom Petty. A tough day
