Family of four die when their car hits a tree.
Schoolfriend suicide: recall how he looked at me.
Teenagers knocked down as drunken driver hits bikes.
Thousands drown in battered town as tsunami strikes.

Tears soak through my pillow but I don't know why
instead of sleep, the world's grief descends upon me.
New born ghosts call with velcro voices which fear to die.
So I weep, a burst cloud in purgatory.

Innocent civilians in a dubious war.
Helpless a protester is shot while on the floor.
Dancer dies from cancer as his baby is born.
Famine devours children after plague destroys corn.

Tears soak through my pillow but I don't know why
instead of sleep, the world's grief descends upon me.
New born ghosts call with velcro voices which fear to die.
So I weep, a burst cloud in purgatory.

Drifting between whirlpool worlds of shade and beyond
like a ship in night ocean storms tossed high, plummeting down
knowing not how far I shall fall.
