8 – Of the Violence

the violence and the English language collaborated

witnessed none worse than what

yesterday, the government

washed its hands, let the police go

the image, the newspaper

say nothing

brutal bruises, into the red

we apologize

rapt by the spectacle

inherent in human nature

we offer no further demonstration of the offal

the unclenched fist of the pacifist

capable of the species, this earth

only comes close to kind cruelty

the violins

of the violence

the violin whispered

i was thinking of

the violence, revolting

to reality

we witnessed much can be said

we have our collective stories

we can only say we hope it was historical

a blood splash to dew-starred grass

i sigh, not through indifference

flickering, say nothing

travel by the light of the stars

there is only silence

the violence ended

post toxin

the typewriter

offset by determination


“The violence that occurred lately was sole. What else can be added?”
