Genoa 2001

Cubic, fist sized
the black bloc offers
concrete poems
speaking violence to power

Phallic, rib cracking
the Law hacks out a harsh rejection slip
on sleeping forms
of those who fight
with dreams,
not rocks or clubs.

Twelve thousand years
evolved this final script,
prologue and epitaph
of primate history
