Karen Kevorkian : Morning News

Spread the pages. Who is
crying today? Mother

lost a son. Father lost
three daughters. Child lost
both arms. City lost
"from the poorest part, the market."

"These scenes are graphic and may contain content offensive to some." The bodies

drawn from their trays in the cabinets
of the morgue. A child who seems to be dressed

in red. Helplessly
weeping, a big nosed mustached man
covers his eyes with one hand. A voice says quietly

"Mohammed, Mohammed." Then the hospital

where from a boy's body wrapped in white gauze

a plastic tube trails.
You see it all.
The man raising

the boy's shirt to show us. The boy's hands
as he tries to

push the shirt down
