the poem starts

something like
but they came back
for him

dragged him out
to the sidewalk and
beat him into a coma then
walked away

and what more do
you need?

this is the event
spelled out as
simply as possible

it happens

not for
the sake of art
and not to reveal some
deeper truth but
because violence is
as effortless as

because it needs
no reason

imagine a
rusted spike driven
through the eye
of god
