Palm Sunday, 2018

He led

a protest march

because the city lost

what it was built to be, to call

it back.

They led

a protest march

because the city left

behind its purpose, and they called

it back.

He poured

out all he was

to set right what was wrong,

emptied his life so we would all

be filled.

They pour

out all their youth

to face what we ignore,

killing off childhood that they might

stop dying.

May our

parades be more

than pleasant novelties.

Let us stand for truth, be emptied

for change.
