A Car Bomb in Baghdad

winds originating
at the edge of a gravel
 road, he gripped a rib bone

 between the remains
 of his son. Gliding
among the stars

glowing tangerine
above an ancient
 tectonic collage

as guts lay bear
in the verdant grass
 of an indoor shopping mall




George Cassidy Payne is a freelance writer, social worker, adjunct instructor of philosophy, and parent of two. He lives and works in Rochester, NY
