Candles windblown…
     … one to one
     each one a-flame, fingers 
     coated in wax
     our not so silent vigil

     tear gas wraps the little crowd

     where he lies black 
     jackets, masks
     helmets, trudgeons

     a continent away
     we see what they have done –
     our brother – Scott Olsen -- carried off

     across 15th Street 
     clouds of rain sweep the towers
     the lights we carry
     flicker & blow out
