in the city of silent effigies

in the city of silent effigies


no hatred



no bullets through the hearts

of holy men


i sit in

the motionless haze of

august evenings

and write poems for

sleeping children



i hold your hand

in the shadows of

the refinery towers


the bleeding horse stands up

and walks away


i pour whiskey

on my father's grave

and villages don't burn

and innocent men don't hang


the walls are always white

the beds always neatly made


i stand

in the middle of main street

and breathe gasoline air


i hold your hand

in the silence of

wide open fields


flowers grow at our feet

and no one declares war


we wait for our luck

                       to fail


—John Sweet
