O Town

Red buses
Line up
Students
Locals
Line up
Roll up
Flex pump up
Angry to spill
For what was
Spilled
Blood
Defies us
Denies us
Unites us
Cleanses us
Cures us
Defines us
To the rest of the world
Would rather be
Walt’s world

    I take this in double meaning. Those hundreds on line rolling up their sleeves to donate blood versus those rolling up their sleeve itching for a fight. Excellent write.

  2. Strong words, strong poem, Jilly. I too run the gamut of emotions…mostly stunned in disbelief that this happened in my home town. I hope we don’t have to get used to this kind of thing happening…
