Athenian Requiem

Athenian Requiem

It comes
without mercy
from a quiet
and unbiased space.
First numb,
then astounding ,
It is done .
It just is .
No why .
No wherefore.
except for
the reverberations
of the words
and the worms
of unspoken emotion
with only
sometime solace
of children
and of a passing wing.
