Journal 1: Flash

Prompt 5, page 17 from Burroway.  Images collide.  Sense impressions, not definitions.

Eating insects
Crossing the Atlantic,
Spicy music.
Don’t blink.

Worldwide diversity
Paper chains;
Little girls in red
Dancing in a line,
Never coming back.

Mean more than you say
Posters with smiling women
A coffin, too small
No wet cheeks.

Lost vocabulary
Distractions amid the noise:
Deo Gratias
