Choke

Fascist vines entwine the tree gripping

it so tightly that it can't breath tree

leaves & vine leaves fight for dominance

I watch this killing helplessly as it

goes on across the fence in someone

else's yard shadows increasing

the horror of watching a murder from

a window the screams are silent

that fill the air only certain beings can

hear them beings with unwaxed

ears & twelve pitches available it is

not the orchestra you might conjure

but it is a quartet of wood instruments

with strings choking choking the

wood creating a sound unheard before

silence is the evil sound that does

not announce this lynching to the world

that goes about its usual day not

disturbed by the news that is far away
