Look at all the girls crying by the school. Galveston, oh Galveston … Another luxury wagon parks up ahead, with even more flowers, even more girls. It maneuvers slowly around the stains on the road. Strangers with cameras move back to fit it all in. I still hear your sea waves crashing … Behind the girls, behind the flowers are the mothers, and behind the mothers are the counselors; senior brownies at a petting zoo. While I watch the cannons flashing … Folk up and down the street are standing by their screen-doors being devastated. Mom's so-called friend Leona was already devastated last week, when Penney's delivered the wrong color kitchen drapes. Typical of her to go off half-cocked. 'Oh my Lord, Vernie, oh God - all those tiny crosses …' I feel Palmyra's hand on my shoulder, and find myself sobbing spit. The picture of Jesus that hangs behind the sheriff's door was taken at the crime scene. From a different angle than I last saw him. It doesn't show all the other bodies around, all the warped, innocent faces. Not like the picture in my soul. Tuesday breaks
