[it flew half mast today]

it flew half mast today
I hadn’t heard the news so
I didn’t know
if someone I care about
had been killed by someone
I don’t or maybe
just died of their own body’s disease
I didn’t check my phone
to find out the catastrophes
my daily drug unswallowed
I can hold the pills in my hand
crimes peacefully unfold explode
who is mangled
Not a soul
