49, 7 squared,
count the birds on the air,
what’s the chance you’ll arrive at 49?.birds-orlando-vigil
49 won’t come home,
call the kin, cars are towed,
high and low you won’t find 49..
++to give blood, ’round the block,
++in a line stranger walk,
++wishing that would bring back 49,
++flowers and candles pile up,
++a makeshift shrine by the club,
++words of love someone wrote on a sign..
it’s someone’s job: mop the floor,
count the birds as they soar,
12×4, then 1 more: 49
in the frame, name by name…
