Richard Schnap- A Poem


Sometimes I might see him
At a copy center printing
The faces of homeless veterans
Of long-forgotten wars

And sometimes I might see him
Taping posters for a reading
Of the poems he writes to silence
The demons in his mind

And sometimes I might see him
Spraying paint on walls for vengeance
Against the ones defiling
The nature of the world

But few choose to remember
And fewer still to listen
For the gestures of defiance
Are the first to be erased
