Waiting Out the Storm: A Poem from a Trial in Long Island, NY, October 28, 2012


Yellow and orange lines track the march of tides and violence

Winds that spiral towards the citadel of justice whose hulking

Mass of concrete and glass faces towards the approaching storm.

 

The onslaught of nature pressing its way attacking without remorse

As malignant cells march through one’s body digging into bone

The darkening sky outside and the bitter whipping of air
