NaPoWriMo Day 21

ERASURE

                     two explosions

     limbs         burns      worse

                         end in blood

       the man

      can’t control 

Just like 

Abuse and battery of 

            a display of his violent side

            she worked

                         child at home



Nothing             amiss

Wouldn’t call it        bliss

Nothing               she knows

Saw it all              TV news
                    the slaughter

Never suspected                      saw it on TV

While working 

                  deeply sickened

      the horror

        a young widow

Shocked            sorrow

This erasure was derived from a post I did during NaPoWriMo 2013 after the Boston Marathon Bombing.
