The Art of Tetman Callis Poems the physics of sudden marital failure

the physics of sudden marital failure

my life blew up in my face
i never heard a sound
there was a flash and still

i can’t see
my eyes are burned

shards that had been my life blew off
i grabbed at them buzzing by my head

trying to catch an explosion
eyes on fire
white blinded

me reaching
reaping the air
the fragments i catch are hot

molten steel life tearing through my hands
speeding away from me
