Eleven elders were executed in a Pittsburgh synagogue
in the deadliest attack on jewish americans in history—
& there’s no way to make sense of this sentence in language.
to diagram or scan it. The more you look the more the words break down

The word synagogue unspools into a length of red thread. Elders
becomes a plum tree young & flowering again. No way to language
this. To use the sentence without breaking it.
