Later

It seems fate has preserved us for another death
As debris was deferred to fall from house dance
Even as a market bench was shivering intensely
On an evening of shoe purchases in the hill city.

 

Beautiful people cried in phone to kids in big eyes
From frightened mom’s love  away in market place
Wondering if it meant good bye to world ,  kid love

 Husband fights, boss harangues, pretty clothes.

 

Shoes might click away on tarmac and  airplane flying
And falling to another death was a remote possibility
If the earth rumbled a second time in its after-anger.
But later ,fate said, preserving us for another death.
