Spotless

There was an explosion

Toxic, previously compressed debris

Everywhere

Yet

Their white coats remained pristine

And spotless

As they took copius notes

  1. the pristine white coats seem to separate them from the emotions normally felt when a tragedy occurs.

    at first i was afraid something new had happened somewhere… well, to one degree or another things do happen to regular people every day,,, but i don’t know about it anymore. i can’t watch the news as it literally paralyzes me with sorrow, depression, hopelessness… the helplessness of knowing there’s nothing i can do to help.

    a powerful feeling and stunning imagery in so few words, Joanne! wonderfully written!
