She's a Kind and Gentle Person

Vomit erupted from my mouth,
forced up and out
from the place of its birth,
as I heard the account of their death.

Her blank expression
reflected that of five babies,
lungs crushed
by her hand.

Unlike Noah of old,
he did not escape the flood
that consumed Luke, Paul,
John, and Mary.
