A memory of another day

A smaller story, maybe
but the images on the TV
reminding me of the helicopters
the schools in lock down

A memory of another day
a manhunt in my city
the whole State in pain
at the officer’s killing

An officer down
shot and killed
one caught,
one armed and dangerous
going house to house

April 19, 2013
search for second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing
in Watertown, MA April 19, 2013
and search for the killer of Officer Michael Briggs,
in Manchester, NH 2006
