numb

(for Alton)

rage is all there is
in this suffocating tide
the words come hard
there’s no flow tonight
no right thing to say
nothing to reverse the bullets
reverse the hate
erase the years
bodies destroyed; stripped
no home, no rest
no place to be
too many names, in the undertow of tears
in the dark
where no light can be trusted
