-Nick Robins-Early World Reporter, The Huffington Post
hardly shows a thing–
when they lost footing,
skin and soles
a sea of fleeing feet.
Not the morning–
when mothers sang,
boys tossed pebbles,
and girls sat stick-straight
listening, chalk scratching slate
before the earth
The papers printed photographs:
broken bricks, blue hospital sheets,
and school shoes, piled high:
ballerina bows and pointy toes–
abandoned by the feet that fit them.
Will their fathers find their shoes?
Will their mothers find their books?
What stories won’t we hear?
