eidelweiss

nine a.m. in Austria
planes.
Crashes on runways.
it’s too dark/no one can see until it explodes.
(Edelweiss in the sidewalk cracks)

nine a.m. in Germany
ships.
submersions in seas.
it’s too dark/they can’t see until the flare goes up too late
(Edelweiss floating near the rag doll coasting the waves)

nine a.m. in Africa, nine in Palestine
convoys.
explosions on back roads.
it’s too dark/they can’t see till the first burning man runs
(Edelweiss sprouting from ashes by a family photo: phoenix flower)

nine a.m. in America, US of A
movies.
T.V.
money/bitches/cars/big houses on little hills–

it’s bright as day and edelweiss is dead
