Six O'clock News

With the detachment of distance
we view the decimation of a man’s home
and, unashamedly, examine his life
strewn upon the rubble.
Already the new graves of most of his relatives
     and friends
are parched under the scorching sky.
Even the wilted flowers that he has placed on
     each have
          begun to bake into the mounds.
From him we hear of what he calls the
damnation of Terni.
And we, unable to feel the dust that is beginning
          to settle on the town
nor hear the wind cry through the ruins,
watch, uninterested.
