Altercation - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki


Here, there, under dunes
Buried are, husks of hope.

“Rain will come.”
They whisper: “wait for drop.”

He, a husk
Wanted to, save a child
Was punished, curb stomp.

Curb stomp and coma
Unconscious, in bed now.

You witnessed in silence?
Shame on you Edmonton.

Love and hope now talks not.
What a shame; feel sweat in spine.

White and flat with snow
Wait for best; the Grande Prairie.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

John St. Jean of Grand Prairie is in coma. He went to save a child and instead was beaten, curb stomped and...hope lives that humanity is still around.
