They said that after the grenade,
colorless a silence crawled,
odorless through dusty streets
through rooms, where many still in sleep;
suffocated with their lungs collapsing
children, women, men.
And afterwards the breathless
stared at you with pin-pricked eyes.
Syria. Sarin. Putin and Assad.
What’s another name for terror?
For Open Link Night with Grace at dVerse.
Pub opens soon.
