Opacity

Can I tell you
please
what I see –
planned assassinations of
symbols like hope but not
private and secretive NO
these cries to extinguish the
sun are just as loud as when
children scream I HATE YOU
to their parents at age fourteen
and they run away
and they cry
but these are adults – oh no oh no oh no
can you see this pain too?
please tell me you can cause I can’t
handle this alone anymore –

Our poor sun.
I am so sorry that
we are so few in number.
Just hold on, we’ll return
with others. I promise.
