Lamentations

Lamentations

You bore witness to Lachrymose visions of

Blackbirds shuttered off to ever-night cages,

White tides flooding municipal blocks,

Girls trading destinies for head or handcuffs,

Boys in suspended flight above sidewalks.

& while His lament sprouted lilies on arid lots

You again demanded an oracle and a sign.
