Bullet tore through fa-
bric and
Blasted Doll’s
Boy’s belly

Bullet tore through fa-
bric and
Baba’s
Beautiful
Brown
Belly and …

Bullet tore through fa-
bric and I-can’t-remember-what-
I-called-him-then’s
Belly and neck and

Bullet tore through
Bright-eyed baby girl wailing

Brokenhearted over
Baba’s bleeding
Broken belly like
Broken promises

Before bullet
and fa-
bric of ambling along
family long
Broken was
Blasted
