All of civility depends on
containing the rage of individuals.

Darkness falls and you think you have won.
A young man’s spine is snapped
and a squad car explodes.
Public Servants band together
Looters and thieves
overtake peaceful protesters,
but the world is too busy to notice,
a humanitarian crises in Nepal,
another American city burns,
but this time, no one notices.
Darkness falls when a young man is shot dead.
Memories of a child
overwhelmed by supporters of the gunman.
Talking heads take to the air
no calls for calm,
vicious rhetoric instead.
Darkness falls and search for a young friend,
perhaps buried beneath the rubble
of a tremblor gone mad,
