image and poem below the fold

from September 1, 1939
by W. H. Auden

Defenceless under the night
Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages;
May I, composed like them
Of Eros and of dust,
Beleaguered by the same
Negation and despair,
Show an affirming flame.

caption, continued: The two were wounded when roadside explosive targeting Iraqi military convoy went off in Mahmoudiya, some 40 kilometers ( 25 miles) south of Baghdad. Three people were killed and three wounded in the blast.
