“Elmina was Auschwitz.” Frederick Seidel

 

carrion she depends on charity
tossing love from the third century
braced below by remains clarity

skeletal american military air
base arms force her forward
heart unsuccessfully toward

the hungry police at river edge coup
shed night like a shroud upend
martial chaos and circle overhead
