Aftermath

we are changed

changed inside

those of us who were there

who were nearly there

who were nowhere near at all

who only learnt later, at a distance

from the newspaper

from the newsfeed

but we were all there

and now we are changed

as we walk the streets

sit on the terraces

sit in the cinema

we know

we could have been there
