The victims’ impact statement 

they said they lost them 

Tossed in the trash?



I see  them clearly

The shape of ordinary Syro-Phoenician

Cursed on lined paper


How do you lose

The story of the rape of children

In parking lots


Public spaces as well as cannibalizing

The geography of “playing house” and “family?”

You should know that the state of f#cking  Texas 

Can “lose” the words we wrote 

All they want

But the story belongs forever

To the indelible

Victims’ statements.
