Genocide: The Dignity of Statues

The dignity of statues.
The colors of conquerors.
The steam from the engines of history.
The totems and maypoles
alongside tall and swollen walls.
Unchanged faces painted all over carousels of ancient ruins
Sinister chariots which carry the skeletons of the dead
and the screams of dying people
who once genuflected.
