caught

March 16, 2012  - Small Stones 
caught by Teri H Hoover

On the path in front of me,
 a man, with a blue shirt, reaches his hand into his pants pocket.
       My breath catches
 a remnant of April 16, 2007.
He pulls out a cell phone.





Notes: I live in Blacksburg VA- the home of Virginia Tech. On April 16, 2007, in two separate attacks, approximately two hours apart, a gunman killed 32 people and wounded 25 others before committing suicide.
