To keep the breath,

Hold the focus,

Bend to the beat,

Storm ?

Anybody else here think

There’s got to be thunder?

Anyone else here think

We need a storm:

When sledgehammer lightning

Goes down, goes down hard,

Again and again until

Tense skies groan and ring;

Until the concrete wheel bleeds

And the stone blind lady sees?

Anybody else here ready to

Take up the call ?

“Being ignored is not the same

As not needing to be heard:

Justice ain’t being served here!”

One for Sorrow.

Was my salute really so poor

That the black-and-white

Felt able to betray me so,

So completely?

Seven flights of seven steps

To bow, trembling,

Before my judgement god.

The desert lords,

Who own the water,

Will have the final word;

Name me

Legend

Or

Villain

A title that will

March with me

Into eternity.

(Jerash, Jordan)

How Much

How much you know –

You, the powerful, the ungodly –

We can never guess.

But

Be careful not to use

The nows

To judge

The thens;

When, we fervently hope –

Things were different enough.

 

We huddle together,

Innocent comforts,

Waiting for cues

For clues,

For bones.
