PoMo2013- Poem 15 - Boston marathon

 Daughter's medal

All three of my children
   
     home tonight
                    limbs
            intact
 
are marathon runners
 
    in New York
         California
              Boston
                    and
                   Washington
                        State

Damn to the haters
          who would take
               their lives away.
You are despicable.

               There is no poetry
                       in the work you do.

Your purpose
                   is shame.
