Cradle of Wonders [Today's News Poem, November 15, 2010]

Cradle of Wonders [Today's News Poem, November 15, 2010]

Sleep through the ashes of mother and father.
Cradle your skull on a pillow of tinder.
Grip your giraffe as the world sets its wonder
Blazing—amazing how scenes seem to vanish.
Faces adored you, now flames are admiring
Ignorance. Torches can send you to dreaming,
Sending you mobiles of smoke as you wonder
How did a world so pronounced with surprises
Conjure a mist in your bedroom. Such splendor!

"A fire at a high-rise building in Shanghai killed at least 42 people and injured more than 90 on Monday, China's state media said."
