Bombs That Blow Up Houses

.

Out walking the dog

I heard the explosion

ran home to find a world

war II movie set

imitating The Blitz

post air raid.

.

They did not prepare

me for tornado-like

damage, blood 

in splintered trees,

bone fragments 

in destroyed flower 

beds.

.

It can not happen here.

We pay billions for it not

to happen here. I think

I recognize the microwave

door a few inches from my

left foot.
