who said
the town was burning

                         she saw
the smoke
from every side of it
& the faces

the screaming mouths.we’ll have
a taste of it

                       & every difference
is marked for onslaught

it’s time
                she said
for removal /
                  /
                / for a stirring
from the alleys
