The house was resting on a slant
(perhaps a cracked foundation).
Inside a scene of chaos
and total devastation.

No glassware left unbroken.
No table left unturned.
Dinner was in the oven,
but it had long since burned.

A woman sat bewildered
amidst all this confusion.
Her eyes were glazed and staring
as if at an illusion.

What catastrophic fate had pushed
this woman’s world asunder?
An earthquake? A tornado? … Nope!
five children, six and under.
