Searching for the Body
Kimberley L Becker


The widened gyre of the police helicopter


Until it treads air


The pond.


Of spotlight on murk.

Though dark, the city park

Is overrun with curiosity seekers.

Some saw the man enter the water.

News crews stage interviews.

Divers come.

Spectators are sent home.
