New York Swallows History

Things were simpler moments before
semantics flooded the room
don’t you think? Yes was yes,
no was no. Data miners kept their distance.

We condemn every besieged democracy
but our own.
Wash our hands of the planet.
Improvise bomb, not courtesy.
Darken the sky with drones.

Stock men spruce up Zuccotti
like we were never there.
How New York swallows history –
an ambush predator constricting its prey.
