Here and Now

I’ve seen this park from

a bird’s eye view

a bird without wings


they told me

the horses were

buried here


hundreds of years ago


I’ve seen myself

in second person

another in another


I heard the women

sing “let’s go down”

through the speaker system


minutes ago


these apparitions

in half-deserted streets

with water trickling


weary of things

unknown although-

-although relatable


and yet tragedy remains

thousands of miles away
