POEM: "Talking To The Rock"

Talking To The Rock 

I became 
an enemy of the state
when I told the truth
the same as I always do
how many birds
did you see today
I saw the ones you
did not bless us all
the end of space is not
the limit of the face
though edges betray
the commons the space
is still unoccupied 

my family my friends
the state became
my enemy when
they took me away
though the edges betray
I will not mourn you
I hope this is not your life
god bless us all
