NO COUNTRY FOR

At noon the ground shook.

House sized boulders, slingshot jagged stone

stunned the village

Hoarse bludgeoned silence

reigned. For the survivors there’s no country

they can rely on

Only toppled homes,

clogged trails, reoccurring tremors,

the buried dead,

and looming

heart-dazed, gut-numbed,

the days ahead
