December 14, 1998

 

Aircraft down  in the St. Lawrence

Three souls plucked, injured, from the roof

Seven remain inside

Plane now submerged

 

the headlines screamed

on paper and in air

imploring me to listen

as people died

 


 

Written in response to the minute by minute updates

on the news as the tragedy continued and asking myself

if we were indeed an improvement upon the Romans.
