Disoriented shapes crush time and space 

senses disturbed by uneven surfaces 
sounds silenced by screams 
huge blocks crudely shock and shake 
our sense of self. 

Four million 
Five million 
Number numbness 
One 
person 
deliberately 
systematically 
ruthlessly 

  i 





every second 
of every hour 
of every day 

through a

year 
and 

half. 

over

and

over

and

over
again. 

every second. 

Massacring spirit 
slaughtering hope 
extinguishing trust. 

an efficient blood lust, 
organized and executed 
and planned 
by thousands 
and thousands 
of loyal citizens,

of active participants,
of engineers, train drivers,
of nurses, architects, brick layers,
of clerks, cooks, drivers
and stokers.


Operating openly in efficient 
coordinated action 
to cleanse the globe 
of imperfect things 
in a perfect, 
sensible world.
