Nine @ Nine

Nine at Nine

Not nine seconds ago.
It was nine lives ago.
Precious like the spirit they were praising
Short like the bullets that shuddered their breaths.
In between hymns and scriptures,
history laid itself inside of itself.
Showing  us and telling us all---
hate is vigorous in someone’s limbs.......
