Thursday Poetry: Going to School in Israel


bullet holes - Copy

 

He brings a pencil, she brings a gun.

Going to school

In Israel.

Mom at the bus stop

Waiting

 For him

To emerge

From the steel cage,

A finger near the

Trigger.

 Her eyes

Trying not to show

Fear.

A car approaches,

Only a car

With another mother

Going to school

In Israel.
