today, mum

someone’s mum found out today

wondering
who knows not knowing

her little boy got blown away

someone’s mum saw someone’s mum
facebook, tv, that’s not me

that’s not us
it cannot be

someone’s mum

that blood those screams that
enormity
that unfathomable, nameless thing

someone’s mum is holding that and
someone’s mum is holding that and
someone’s mum is holding that

this
is the hell of it

not some internet ranting maniac
nor tabloid venom
daytime telly monochrome

someone’s mum found out today
the kids her boy had blown away
no words work ever again
