Two Years Ago Tomorrow


April 23, 2019

Two years gone

and you missed the world mutate

how strange to imagine you

out on the road among the masked

trying to parse

what can't be understood

weaving through contesting slogans

inked during curfews

washed out by moonlight

seeing men scale hallowed edifices

unchecked and merciless

defiling doctrines once sacred

Two years and the world you knew

is more gone than you.
