Standard

… It happened there, by the river,
forceful waters pushing forward,

it happened by the river,

beneath a sky of impenetrable blue,
the city skyline like a row of broken teeth,

it happened by the river,

it was in the papers, all of the papers,
the story was told and told again,

it happened by the river,

six somber shadows washed up
and found rest on the shore,

six charred carcasses mistaken for sleepers…
