Life Goes On



Caroline and 149 others are dead

Caroline and 149 others are dead
Babies are born
Beer is drunk
Bodies come together
Lives move apart

Countries advance
Then spiral into chaos
As Salvadoran fights Salvadoran

Bullets fly
Ricochet around numbers
Push the meaning away from the statistics

I wash the blood from the numbers
And re-add the figures
Arrive at a bloodless sum

The blood drips down
Makes sticky puddles on the floor
That go unnoticed
Because they blend into the carpet
