HIDING


Three members of a British family - named as Iraqi-born Saad al-Hilli, 50, from Surrey, his wife and an older woman - were found dead in their BMW near Lake Annecy on Wednesday.  Police hope to question the four-year-old daughter found hiding in the car. Another daughter, seven, is in a coma in hospital with serious injuries.  A French cyclist was also shot dead.
Hiding,
still,
quieter than the quietest mouse,
frightened,
cocooned,
alone,
waiting,
waiting,
lightest of light breathing,
eyes shut tight,
hands over ears,
a four-year old,
face wet with tears,
hides,
waits,
frightened, 
cocooned, 
alone, 
still.
