Poems from the book Midnight Strike, Poetry

Pittsburgh

I read this poem at the Vallejo United Against Hate & Anti-Semitism rally on October 28, 2018.

Pittsburgh

We who pray
words of peace,
words of love,
words of unity,
words of welcoming,
words of kindness,
words of justice…

These words transform our hearts
to take action
in favor of these holy ideals.

Eleven mensches,
were taken from us,
so senseless,
by one who let words
that stoke fear and hatred
transform himself instead.

And so I have no more words.

They only exit as tears.
