Media Immunity

Our hearts and minds have synthesized

from concern to in-difference.

Briefly, the red-stained headlines invoke

spontaneous outrage, briefly…

Only before the turning page

followed by the next day’s live events.

shattered limbs in black body-bags,

scintillating, debris-strewn streets,

this death,

that disaster,

this —

that —

And in other news this fine day…
