LILACS

oh
open
all the windows
all the doors
the darkest purple
lilacs
are in bloom
a row
a hedge
full and green
and
all in bloom
open
all
your windows
your doors
hold
hold
the lilacs’ fragrance
make it
yours

HOLDING ON

avoided the news (again)
watched
the RFK documentary
i remember this
i was turning
the corner
to the teen years
then
already active
in social justice
causes
i stood
transfixed
drained
he was dead
all that I
had thought
and believed
again
killed by
ignorance
hatred
fear
even then
even
as a child
i knew
better to live
by your principles
whatever the cost
than to spend
longer on this earth
without them
