I wake
sheets soaked through.
A message stitched together
Syncopated
Unrelenting
A notice…
In my son’s voice
Of his death.
I can’t imagine
The dust
The terror
The cacophony
But I feel the deep belly fear.
My heart skips a beat
In sync with his.
A weapon jams…
Once
Twice
Thrice.
My fist just so
In my mouth.
The umbilical chord
Cut but not severed.
Forever connected
In time.
A mother’s knowing
Of her grown child’s
Moment of panic.
