Cold Rain In May

there are times when things get so muddled
you cant make anything of it
something is over
i can't place it
it left today
nothing will be the same
i can't place it
you can't leave a mark here
or anywhere
plug your child beating drunken bigoted ass in the ground
as we go away
at one time that which was so common
now becomes rarer or extinct
like the ability to stand on your beliefs
no matter what the climate
to strive the best you can
to be yourself
unbowed and naked
pearl harbor is beautiful
someday belsen will be a subdivision
or a shopping mall
the best we can do it leave marks on each other
scars and lines of direction
which are as permanent
as sandcastles and stars
