some people I know
who were nearby
(who saw it happen)
they were plunged into the vacuum
shellshocked exalted sleeps
But everyone could sense what had happened!
Blustering statements were made by powerful men of all disciplines!
A probe was dangled into the place where it happened!
Reptiles in the zoo began cackling all night long about it!
Undetectable aircraft navigated the skies
Droves of children left their houses, compelled by invisible carnivals,
lured, some hypothesize
into glistening arcades of rhinestone circuitry
far below the earth!
Hotels were left vacant for weeks!
