Do you feel it?
A looming shadow over your right shoulder?
That feathered clutching of throat & tummy?
As you learn, 50,000 are dead now,
do you catch sight of it,
out of the corner of your eye?
It comes swiftly.
Can you name it. Own it,
stuff it into the compartment you're building in your mind?
And go on.
