Bullet's Release

black saints on fire
those garbagemen in
Memphis, 1968,
wearing placards and hearts
screaming silently
I Am a Man
refusing to accept the
mis-treatment of bigotry,
supported by Dr.King only
to have him fall to
a bigoted 30.06 bullet
from the bathroom of a
flophouse
on a motel balcony
larynx deceased,
yet voice, song, soul and dream
still soaring
