the earth moves slowly now

the earth moves slowly now

while rubble collects dust settles

my ears ache and i cant hear

the screams of the man beside me

looking for his other leg

sad he was a runner like me

this is a different kind of grief

complete and horrifying in clinical precision

respecter of no one

those who run to revenge

those who pray for peace

those who still dont know

those who look the other way

either way

running to grace is still better

than running away in fear

because the earth moves slowly now
