In the Case of Stanley Williams VS the State of California

The Candle Glows

I shut my eyes in order to see.
- Paul Gauguin

grief is private
but sometimes the world needs to know
that all people are the victims
of the swirl of violence
one beginning attaching
to the end of another
it preys upon us
like a striped tiger
slinking through the underbrush
camouflaged stealing the silence
paws moving noiselessly swiftly
spreading weeping
rippling into the night
