Bamboozled No More! Mourning the Loss of Lives and Minds


 

Part I Dear Reader

Dear Reader
Sometimes I don’t hear words and the sounds disappear
Sometimes my heart is broken into too many pieces
And sometimes I am too sad to add punctuation

 

Part II The Opposite of Absolute

It is said there is one God
known to different peoples
by different names.
How does the glass appear to you?
Half empty?
Half full?
How does God decide among the multitude of requests disguised as prayers?
Who lives?
Who dies?
Who suffers?
Who will rejoice?
How does the glass appear to you?
Half empty?
Half full?

 

Part III Urban Scape

A statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
surrounded by roses and weeds.
Statement or warning?
