Who can see?

After
bombs
falling

the clatter
downpour
of debris
dust

on jagged walls … … smoke climbing
the ladder of wind

to furl and hook
into the lungs
of the next city

over

every throat
seared

the wide-eyed stars
in first contact
people on those worlds
a thousand years
from now
screaming
