distant trumpets

2 Jun

just a hint of a hurt

showing up on his shirt

while all the while

distant trumpets

and the roll of thunder

just a gaze held for a vicious moment

of madness encased in a shell

showing up on the news

our own little guided tour of hell

while all the while we hear

distant trumpets

flashes of lightning

pierce the mottled landscape
