Murder Annales

for Esperanza

If I get up out of this chair and go
I won’t be coming back,
I’ll learn to be with no chair

but not these hands, this body, your lips,
your warmth, your birth
in the middle of his I have a dream

. . . his whole speech complete
with news nothing has changed
45 yrs since King, 50 after JFK
