November 13, 2015: Paris

She hangs from a window ledge
by her fingertips
amid carnage
suicidal homicide
blood splattering
the world.
She hangs from a window ledge
the pregnant woman
hanging on to life
amid carnage.
We hang by our fingertips
from the window ledge
of this pregnant moment
between civilization
and madness.
