passing movement

this is not what they want
but the crowd refuses to listen
and together by the issue
they feed the exotic into
the mouths of the starving

it was not simply that the
structure of grace and
harmony suffered
before an angry mob
or that the intolerable give
orders for the innocent
to be crucified

historians tell very
different stories
whipping was common
led to despair

that feeling and their own lives
the difference between
the presence of people
and the intrusion of a
daydream among the inhumane
