Seedy sun at dusk
Burnt terracotta patting
A lollygag gagged.

Breathing in a frozen field
Feeding hungry skies

They burn effigies
And whisper behind church halls
Self righteous and sly,

They tattoo themselves
With violent lullabies
And laugh through silence,

In strange times like these
They rise up from their gutters
And rustle their hate.

A truth that forgets nothing
A sunset on pause

As frosty mornings return
And children sketch breaths

A long promenade of stars
Welcoming winter

Like the last leaves decaying
In an old wet park
