Photo From The Haitian Quake

A hole torn
in the cobble-stone street
— teeth of a dying man.
Dirt, debris.
A dust-covered arm
pokes from rock
and splintered planks:
two-by-fours, wall board,
an Adidas sneaker.
And that left arm,
hand balled in a fist,
the blue-faced watch
on the wrist stopped
at nine-fifteen.
