Poetry Series: Therefore We Can Be Free (Part 3)

former police commander jon burge dead

and no multicolored hands clasp
bleeding forgiveness
you are not
the human in this place
moon shouts shanatova
sun unmelts pocketed chocolate bars
god says       cool millions line up
to spit on your grave it rains because
the clouds want in death is your
greatest apology

the actual words of the article said:
FOP offers condolences to the burge family
stating it does not believe
the full story of the burge cases has ever
been told            family has no comment
