From Light, the Tempestuous Revival 

​Banned.
Your color, banned, your lifestyle:

you transit the sun, your face
banned
from light, the tempestuous revival

of awkward ceremony.
We praise the locking away

of a man’s tears and
ban
the creative motives of our mothers

because fluidity speaks too loudly,
flows too strongly 

through our
banned
emotions.  We are in denial, shaman

ashamed of technology, and we
ban
the worst demons of our nature

for fear they are our reflections.
