Here is the News

[Westminster, London, 22nd March, 2017]

.
Here is the News and here are the
realities: on the BBC, reporters
.
refer to catastrophic injuries while
cataclysmic scrolls along the screen –
.
language perhaps at its most sadly
tautologous, but already gone astray
.
[CNN reporting the former accurately
thousands of miles away, then explores
.
terrorist threats as a certain surmise]
and the news isn’t fake but dubious.
.
What do we really know? Excusing
the profundity of that question,
.
we know people have been hurt and
some have died. We know these did not
.
make it across that everyday bridge.
We know no one needs to ask how
.
eyewitnesses feel, but they will.
We know there will be no intentional
.
lies, but await characters from signals
beyond reasoning, and then poetries
.
too risk footholds their finite words try
when walking carefully side-by-side.
