A Couple of Murders

so very pat
talking about
the life that was

24 years old
has much potential
28 years old
has no capacity
to bury a younger brother

condolences are ridicule
sympathy a joke

songs and epic poems
will be written and performed
by no one who was there

arrests and charges
will and will not

no death penalty
will bring life back

yet feeling the kick
of the hammer
sending 357 lead
through heart or head

would bring release
