Angel’s Hellfire

Reflection upon terror attack at Pulse night club, Orlando, FL

Hypnotic beat
Pulses
Dancers meet
Seeking love
Soaking in acceptance
Social safe haven
Happy
Joyful

Cracks and pops
At first
Blend with the beat
Wait
Stop
Think
Too many
Screams
Save one,
All seek escape
Graphic violence unfolds
Carnage
Running
Falling
Trampling
Pain
Turns life to death
Hate spews
Fear cries out
Screams of horror
Begging to be spared
And grief beckon
Prayers lifted for
God to intercede
For life
For souls to take
For death

WHY?

To assuage repressed feelings
Cold heartedly calculating
Demonic possessions unleashed
Explosive bursts
Gunfire

To level a playing field
Stacked against
Oppressed minorities
With bloody pools of innocents

For retaliation?
For justice?
For purification?
For religion?

Misfiring synapses
Cause unfit mind
To unleash hellfire
Blindly upon angels

Until silence punctuated
With sobs
Last breaths
Ringtones
Flash bang
Shouting
Gunfire
Silence

Angels

In response to the needless slaughter and wounding of humans

in Orlando, Florida

on June 12, 2016

In honor of the medical personnel,

first responders,  investigators,

family and friends of each victim

who remain to piece together lives

which are forever changed

    1. The challenge is in finding a response that denies no freedoms, presumes innocence before guilt, and addresses the systemic causes to prevent would be attackers from internalizing hatred to the point of action.
