she has the world riveted,
her grief has punctured
the hardest, most scientific hearts.

a recognition of deep, shattering loss
falls over the faces of people
from North America to South, to Europe, Asia, and back again.

how long, they cry out in judgment, can she go on like this?
how long, we cry out in love, can she not?
