Tense Last Night

Tense night last night
Wedding with fireworks, gunfire in the street? – gets difficult to tell…
… Sitting in a bar in Beit Anisa, outside …
A group of about 10 of us …
Talking about a Free Palestine concert …
Then wham!
What the fuck was that? …
A rock comes down, hits Jo, hits the table and ricochets into Anna, keeps going …
Jo – I’m bleeding,
Anna – I’m bleeding,
Anna passes out …
Jo’s got a head wound–use her jacket – apply compression –
Need to get to a hospital …
… Ramallah Hospital’s the closest, known as ‘The Morgue’, though– a real shocker –
… again very tense … like a small war going on, and that’s inside the hospital –
staring, and fingers on triggers – always fingers on triggers – tense …
Not good. They want to shave Jo’s head. She’s having none of it. Get them out, out, get them to a private clinic …
… Four stitches for Jo, one for Anna …
Just working out the why of it this morning …
