strong as flowers

america seeps into cracks of sidewalks …

…seeps…

red graffiti like

petals of voices

…unheard…

…seeps protests

burning white hot as

hell’s collection

bills…

and red as pounds

of flesh stolen

from blue clad officers attacked

by moonlight …

….we bleed

by candle

light…

flicker… wane…and

pray…for fishes and loaves

and forgiveness and love to

drip like beads of

wax…pray

for

bandages

white

as

moonlight…

through

tear stained

glass windows ..

we

light candles … cry for

grace as

green

as

trees …forgiveness

as strong as

flowers

  1. Love the interweave of red, white & blue to reinforce that it is the USA you are talking about. I may be wrong, but it seems like it may be expressing the struggle our culture is having here expressed as reactions against hate crimes and police shootings of minorities, and the like.
