Bombingham, by Arika Elizenberry

Bombingham
by Arika Elizenberry

10:22 a.m.

…and less than a minute later
15 sticks of dynamite blew
out the church’s basement,
propelling four black bodies –
like heavy sheets over a
clothesline, among shards
of brick and rock. Black smoke
evaporated into the sky, screams
shook the blocks. But, a stained
glass window of Jesus leading a
group of young children, remained
undamaged.
