East of Here

by
East of Here poem featured

Ophir J. Bitton

Which way should 
I look, a question 
I should have 
never asked, the aim
followed by the
blast, parts
parted before my 
eyes, nothing said
from the shouting
and the cries,
why do I still
stand, why, I
do not understand
nor any of it, for
now, I cannot look.
