In the graveyard
of little Ms. Carries
lie

A trillion tiny mounds
of life-soaked tampons
buried in meticulous rows
of legislated regret

just another cemetery,
but this one belonging to
life’s potential deaths
mourned not by moms

but by nationalists
who pray upon
the helpless unliving

only because they can
