la Revolución!

it was all
happening
la Revolución!
from tired hands
flew bricks
that broke through glass
as glass bottles
broke against bricks
it was all
shattering

coming down
in peaces

riot police
stepped into
the streets
like bookmarks
pulled from their places
in stories
that had slowed down
to catch
their breath

a gasp for air
cut short

they had painted
their hearts
on picket signs
in vivid colors
“Justitica para todos!”
translation: unimportant
