trails of smoke and then...

Poem to Palestinian Mothers yesterday in response to a picture of rockets landing on children and families, supported by the government of the USA:

trails of smoke
falling into my village
not the trails of angels but of violence
against my family, my neighbors even those I do not get along with
trails of smoke from the rockets
marked by the USA
sold to the killing nation of Israel
to kill the innocents
trails of smoke in the sky
run for cover
pray for peace, yes, peace
and maybe quiet...
