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.
