Rumbles from the Earth

Rock crushes scissors
Scissors cut paper
Paper covers rock

a children's game
and then it came

Rock crushes bones
Bones break, here take
blanket covers dead
pulled from under rock

Nowhere to go
nothing to eat
night falls
they thirst.
Please ...

Quake crushes Haiti
Papers cover crisis
they amputated her leg
without anesthesia

rock in my stomach
cry in my throat
too little too late
for some

Three days now



Regarding the earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010:
