Poetry24 highly recommends poems for Grenfell Tower. Such a poignant anthology, including poems by Abigail Elizabeth Ottley, Finola Scott, and Janine Booth.

'An Explosion of Sadness'

This week in Eindhoven
an explosion of sadness 
as bodies landed
nameless and limbless. 

Last week in Ukraine
an explosion of madness.
Rain of bodies and fuselage,
broken and breathless.

An anonymous cortège,
an unplanned arrival,
without explanation
in fields of Sunflower and rebels.

Who knows next week, where,
what will fall from the air?
