THE MOON TURNED INSIDE OUT


THE MOON TURNED INSIDE OUT

silent silhouettes
around the fire
torn blankets
wrapped around
frozen bodies

bleary the eyes
skin ashen
no flesh to hide
hungry throbbing
leather tongue

decayed to dust
soil tired of giving
once a herd so proud
screaming in silence
in search for life

the moon
turned inside out
her white milk
unattainable
black child’s mouth

Oh God you forgot
this lost people
bereaved of hope
subject to
unscrupulous chiefs

defending their names
preserving their roots
they look at the stars
in vain tracing
the eyes of the world
