Chrysogonus #76 - last lullaby

last lullaby 
meditation on the reporting of rape cases in Indonesia, May 2016

the moon caresses
girl in the gorge

sleeps with dirt
on rock mattress

grey clouds come close
would wash her clean

tears cannot come

nothing heaven can do
but stars watch

blood dried on the thighs
where are the men?

drawn down, drawn down
to earth, our mother

silence the embrace
too late

what's left when
a heart no longer beats?

girl in the gorge
with the moon's caress

what are the men
who did this?
