A Second Changes Everything

A Second Changes Everything

 

A bullet leaves the barrel of a gun

A man thinks ‘what have I done?’

 

The sky is cornflower blue, without a cloud

The President waves at people in the crowd

 

A woman turns slightly to look at him

The sun glints off the Lincoln’s trim

 

A watcher points a cine-camera at the parade

The five star generals and the new frontier.

 

Tell me about the missile crisis and the U2 flights

She Wears Pink

 

she wears pink

to brighten his day

and the November sun

shines off the black

of the bonnet

of the car

that they share

down Elm Street

into Dealey Plaza

into the bright

Dallas daylight

with their backs

to the red brick

book depository

he waves to

children nuns

preachers cowboys

cons and killers

Tell me about Oswald, Ruby and J Edgar Hoover,

Tell me about Dealey Plaza and the Dallas motorcade

Tell me about Elm Street and your final wave
