now then – killing a waitress
in central vienna
a terror attack of deranged
shooting indiscriminately at
all of us – just think for a moment –
besides the act being below the
lowest of any man’s base/lip service
against it will not help eradication of
radicalism/extremism/low life attacks/
twisted minds/existence of evil
since kain and abel
extreme left and right
but then – is deradicalisation possible?
so then/killings will carry on?
perhaps the poet had a bad feeling
on monday the second of the
having lost half of his molar on a
bite of crispy toast?
this eleventh month – reminder of
catastrophic events – is badly tainted
with blood in our minds.
