From Classroom to Casket

*takes a moment of silence for the children of Uvalde, TX*
#IStandWithUvalde

Rose on tombstone. Red rose on grave. Love – loss. Flower on memorial stone close up. Tragedy and sorrow for the loss of a loved one. Memory. Gravestone with withered rose

From classroom to casket

an American journey

come in on a bus, leave on gurney


As children lay dead in Uvalde Texas

it’s hard to ignore the obvious nexus

with unfettered access to weapons of war

the number of dead will continue to sore


We live in a land

of pierced hearts and sorrow

no shooting today?

we’ll wait for tomorrow

in a fog of futility

explicably numb

we reach for our heartstrings

but there’s nothing to strum
