Rendered Voiceless

Sylvia just wanted to know, "Did anyone ever think that the soldiers would not be sloppy, reckless, and arrogant enough to kill civilians? Of course they kill civilians. This is news? Everyone is responsible." The manager calls the cops, "Another madwoman!" She is escorted out of the diner by the elbows. They drag her on, hoping she will calm. Her heels drag over greasy linoleum then hot cement then uncut grass. Eventually she drops her suspicious bag, and the peaches and berries splatter everywhere. She is crying; stones glide down her cheeks. The CPD officers throw her into the lake. The whirling derFish feed on her tongue.
