Grenfell by Barbara Donne

Tell me how to impose
a structure
on
disaster

..
What nouns
verbs
rhythm, rhyme

..
I have no template
I start
and the line
breaks

..
Imagine shadows
trapped in windows
shapes
who were not cut out for this
every step of stair beneath them
falling

..
No-one expects to decline
‘We will burn…
have burnt…
are burning’
