reopening phase one…

lives
so
neatly
placed
into vanilla envelops
filed away
for
the next of kin
to
research
at
a later day
if
ever
the contents
of
these
lives
are quite
amazing
for
some
others
are
rather
docile existences
but
all and all
all
worthy
of our appreciation
had
their entry
into
these metal catacombs
been due
to
acts
of
god
or
the sheer misfortune
of
age
one could readily
accept
their
departure
from
the living
but
to have been
used
as
starter charcoals
for
the fire
of
the economy
is
less
comprehensible
or
moral
but
that aside
that
has been
the plan
well
at least
for
those
with
limited
wealth

  1. This one is potent. I found the one, two-word lines frustrating and then realized that yes, that is what it is all about. Not knowing where it will end, watching the horror of this administration unfold slowly (since when does a one week story seem like it is unfolding slowly???).
