Dominos

Dominos
Stacked to fall
Circular perfectly
Stacked
One falls
She is raped
Mauled
By an animal
Three rush in
To help
They cover
Her wounds
They weep
All fall
Together
A bullet
Meant for
No on in
Particular
A child falls
Family
Falls one
One top of the
Other
Graveside
The circle begins to
Collapse
Bullies
Relentless
Relentless
Push
Until another falls
He takes
His
Family
With him
As they fall
Trying
To
Save him
Relentless
The circle collapses
Neatly
As cancer
Grows silently
Grandmother falls
Softly
Grandfather cannot
Manage without
Her so he
Falls beside her
The circle collapses
Outward
Another domino
Is added at the edge
A baby cries
They fall
More are added
Swirling outward
