Force of chaos raised her knife
sliced like alabaster bread, soon
crushed, in hands of sobbing grief.
Disaster in the moment of a shaking
broken earth, where soil like molten
plastic did swallow people whole;
rent asunder, dusty vomit spewed,
in graphic, ghastly demonstration
of nature’s force and inner fury, as
earthquake then did mine the
horrors of the broken, shattered day.
