Polytechnique

Remember! the voices cry

but who anywhere

could possibly forget?

Across the country

I heard the deafening shots

On that day now 25 years past

You were me—-

woman studying

head down

future in focus

prime systems vibrantly alert

hardly expecting

that moment

when all evil

somehow found you

extinguished

your bright beautiful brilliant

light.
