The Revolution Will Have its Sky

April 14, 2016


Veils of mirrors in tatters,

all the shattered bits inside a tiny

diamond. The revolution will have its sky.

Stripes and gold fringes demand a whore

of decorations to a uniform

you can give last orders

to last men. The eternal song

can prolong the funeral trick

but for a moment. The revolution

demands a tribute trick, just as a bullet

demands a target trick, and the masses

their reluctant-whore-queen trick,

which is one long brothel trick.
