Harvest Time

Seeds rashly
Scattered
Ground
Underfoot
Latent anger potent germinates

Shot-triggered
Sudden shoots
Watered by
Familial tears
Sweep through startled streets

Rage grows
Blossoms
Bursting
Fire-flowers
Acrid-scented choking smoke


We dread this
Deadly flowering
Yet
We sow
And reap
And reap and still we sow
