05/30 Destruction

05/30

Destruction

 

Shrapnel juts out of bones and plaster

haphazard direction.

Filling of iron shards

Inches from the spinal cord

Scrap of exploded kitchen metal.

Next door to the alleged training center

Home in Miram Shah Pakistan

Official count:

7 deaths, 4 injured, 0 children death, 0 civilian deaths, in strike on a house.

 

This weaponry is new

Video game controller guides fiberglass and steel

Armed and fired with the “X” button,

Desert of Nevada.

Young man who grew up with controller in hand

Call of Duty one day,

Duty calls the next.

Collateral damage,

Home in mountains in Pakistan

4 injured, 7 confirmed deaths.

Alleged training facility in a country where no war has been declared.

 

Collateral damage

Psyche of a boy at a controller,

Given power and anonymity

Following orders

Executing 10,000 miles around the world.
