we are all failures in measure

it is thru our failures we learn to be kinder

when our failures die we swat at guns

look and see

what a violent species we are

see and hear us needing a “monster”

as if a “monster” child is not a tortured soul

surviving by denial guarantees our

becoming a more violent species

no peace
on earth

transfiguration is for the living
when innocent lives are lost
