Scores dead in Mumbai train bombs

More than 160 people have been killed and 460 injured by seven bombs on the train network in the Indian financial capital Mumbai (Bombay), police say.

Across the street from the Mumbai Western Railway, the station
was scattered with fractured love,
with shredded hope
of cleaved flowers,
dead mice,
angry servants;
things we could kill with our own bombs… or hands… or fear… given time.

Children waiting, mothers, fathers- transient- passing- gone. Waiting.
Hungry; hungry for work or worship… whichever came first,
but not death blasting its marked solitude
of splintered joy in moist fragrance,
pierced skin
the color of kings wrapped in flags.
