thrown loudly


By Mike O’Connell
i saw what i seen
from behind my sign
shades down
visor activated
i passed
a broken window
my shadow in the shards
a clown face smiling moving on
heading up wind
of tear gas plumes
ducking tumbling missles
randomly launched
from angry mobsters
most not knowing
why they hate
why they hurt
where they are going
following one another
until rage subsides
passes with the dawn
ironies set aside
until the howling
begiins again
windows and bricks
are harvested tested
messages whispered
to the stones
thrown loudly
(Mike O’Connell 3/7/18)
