Darkness and Light

December 19, 2013

Despite the law,
in 1968,
the dark people still kept to the balcony
leaving vacant corners for pale lovers
so that when they stopped the movie
the evening following the afternoon in Memphis,
announced he was dead,
the light people,
a theater full of them were cheering
and the dark people,
silent,
looking down.
