The challenge today was to write about a miscommunication - nothing in my own life came to me as inspiration so I did a little research - I remember when this happened - it was a horrible mistake...I felt so bad for the families...

Tragedy in West Virginia Mine Kills Eleven

you thought you heard they were found alive,
when you only heard they were found,

deafened by hope, you didn’t hear the stop,
but completed the sentence yourself,

the mind hears what it wants to hear, yours
no different, the crime was in passing the news

to the families, telling them it was safe to drop
their defenses, to rise in jubilation, praise God

for delivering their brothers, fathers, husbands,
sons, then whisking the miracle away
