April 4 1968 Martin Luther King Shot!

April 4 1968

the Racine
Public
Library
suddenly -
closed.

Martin Luther
King, shot!
April 4 1968 Martin Luther King Shot!


Head home -
'there's curfew'
the police
drive by me,

walking,
to remind.

True action
begats

false
counter action

then
some short period of
reconciliation

followed
by
long years
of

nefarious, evil
counter action,
counter action

waiting again
for
truthful
direct
action.
