(for Touch Chea and Sorn Sreap)

How do you survive
Pol Pot
and then
be killed
a world away
in your home?

I don't understand.
I don't want to have to understand.

Note: Touch Chea and Sorn Sreap were Cambodian refugees who were killed in their home in Anchorage. Their killer, just released from jail earlier in the day, also sexually assaulted their 2 year old grand-daughter and an elderly, demented relative.

Ugly 2

Summer sunshine
doesn't erase
the ugly stain
of a couple
mowed down
with malice.

Note: A couple walking home were deliberately hit by a car. She remains in critical condition.
