The Smoke Makes Aliyah

Smoke makes aliya
these days
The heart descends

Innocents sprinkled on a beach
scribing impunity in blood
and broken bones

On balconies
the congregants are stunned
As the smoke goes up
they rend our screens
in mourning

"It's a shame they didn't identify them as kids with all
of the advanced technology
they claim they're using."
