The bird may die

I feel sad,
I feel blue.

I go outside and rub my fingers
on the sleek shell of the night.

"I see that lights of contact are blocked,
All lights of contact are blocked."

"Nobody will introduce me to the sun,
Nobody will take me to the gathering of doves."

Keep the flight in mind,
The bird may die.

Federal court rejects Troy Davis' appeal
© The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Welcome to hell. A hell erected and maintained by human-governments, and blessed by black robed judges. A hell that allows you to see your loved ones, but not to touch them.
A hell situated in America's boondocks, hundreds of miles away from most families. A white, rural hell, where most of the captives are black and urban. It is an American way of death.
