~ Non-Norse Poetry by me ~ 

 
Collateral

Father of four, overtime 
in his office, often too late 
for supper - tonight 
he won´t make it 
His room went up into smoke 
just like that.

Half-world away, Umm Rashid 
is swaddling her youngest 
when the walls come down 
She never noticed 
how the shell hit.
