Robert Verdon, #323, malignancy


many dogs mangy starving fell upon rotten scraps

one stood looking on afraid

like a servant tormented holding a glass bowl who rips it in half

blood ran in the dust

the locals threw rocks and chased them all away

  2. Yes. Most powerful
    The malignancy of the 3 actors
    The extent to which the disease spreads
    How fast each is implicated in the next
    and with whom does one identify
    Sadness in the reactive chain.

    Very fine.
