Donal Mahoney- A Poem

The Ferguson Apocalypse 

Missouri, U.S.A. 2014

From shimmering oil
of ebony still

will come flailing of limbs
will come hacking

quick slashing
of hands now untied

tattooing no pattern
not even a maze

depriving gray walls
of their stone

will come spittle
wild churning rivers

agush from slack jaws
of blanching gray hounds

till one day at dawn 
will come quiet

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
