Executing A Miracle
In the courtyard,
black shirted riflemen
at attention in the rain.
The Chief Justice
wipes his neck, pushes
another paper across his desk.
The Miracle, green and yellow feathered,
has orange bilingual shoes
and a Mambo heartbeat.
The Chief Justice
reads from his paper
and nods his head,
they fire,
and the Miracle falls;
a pile of broken triangles.
