Why can’t compassion change our lives/ even half so completely as a suicide bomber

Breaking Spring

Matt Hart

seems like a good way to say
I spent all last week feeling helpless
and talking about it in terms of not being

Why can’t compassion change our lives
even half so completely as a suicide bomber,
or half so immediately as a natural disaster

Read rest of poem 

(poetry diary 256-5/23/17)  – after the Manchester Arena bombing
