In Unjust Spring - Poem by Hans Ostrom

with apologies to e.e.)


'in unjust Spring
after the po-
lice state had arisen (peo-
were dis-
tracted) (fires
burned in Baltimore, well
known to be
a terribly terribly racist
city: plagued
by the pale doom of
american history.
Baltimore is all the rage
that builds up: frus-
tration & americans rather
likesitscities to die,
especially
black&brown
spaces, '
he spoke, in despair and not
knowing what else to do.
