The Execution

His only crime was failure

to breathe.

His justice ended

(put out like a light)

We were all in the room.

We all saw it. There was

nothing we could do.

Was it done to teach us?

or wound us?

I learn only one thing:

Days will pass

into weeks and months

they’ll forgive

themselves

but we won’t forget
