Observation - June 5th, 2020, Friday


The city is green

It is summer and it is quiet—right now, at 4:00 pm

If I think about it

I can recall the sounds of gunfire

That woke me up in the middle of the night

The quiet lays on Minneapolis like a green veil

The city is restive

The demand for justice is simmering, now

Seven days ago, we were at a roiling-boil

I can smell the ashes lingering—still

The chemical scent of unnatural fire

Scratching in my throat

Fade


An enigma hides
Mountains blanketed in mist
Invisible pass

A dirge in my heart
The funeral pipes and drums
The dark god dances

The luring of bells
The memory of love, splintered
Bright embers fading

Incandescent charms
Burn briefly against the night
Falling to the ground

The ashes of dreams
The infinite murmuring
The eternal flight
