Spectator, 190714 by afraidofwords. 
i ash everywhere. hands shaking from languages translated to communicate anguish. 
bury me in smoke, my body knows not how to talk about this — 
history teaches us only one thing: at any moment at all it could happen to you. 
how much of the world’s grief must i carry to prove that i too am human? 
all this human. and not once does it show anywhere but on the face. 
not enough. stand up tall, not enough. spend quotes like a  failing currency. advertise strength for the limbless, 
not enough. not human enough to save a child’s breath from exploding 
into oblivion, let alone remind the world of what is human.

i ash everywhere. hands shaking 
from languages translated 
to communicate anguish. 

bury me in smoke, my body 
knows not how to 
talk about this —

history teaches us 
only one thing: at any moment at all 
it could happen to you. 

how much 
of the world’s grief must i 
carry to prove that i too am human? 

all this human. 
and not once does it show 
anywhere but on the face. 

not enough. stand up tall, 
not enough. spend quotes like a  
failing currency. advertise strength for the limbless, 

not enough. not 
human enough to save 
a child’s breath from exploding 

into oblivion, let alone 
remind the world of what 
is human.

with the sunlight — till dawn
do they part.
