Ramifications (a poem)

Partly inspired by an article in The Guardian

Billions of particles found
in the hearts of city dwellers

manifest in

dreams dashed
ambitions abandoned
big plans broken and battered
perspectives punch drunk or punctured

all in the blink of a blind eye—

because nobody warned them
it was coming
what it would do
or how it would feel

So now it comes down to this—
and we’re as mystified as ever
