After the Arrests Snowhill Queensway Is Eritrea

The five police officers’ eyes
looked just like the four soldiers
who’d been guarding the three Rashaida
who also didn’t speak as they watched
small safety-catch levers being pushed
before each shot them twice.
Then one turned to me, “Go home.”
and in the same great silence I did.
