This man standing in silence in the park
For hours now. The sky is growing dark
The sun has gone, and in the dark he stands
Alone, unarmed and unafraid. His hands
Hang empty and unclenched. There is no threat
Implicit in his stance; at least, not yet.
He will not fight, and he will not be chased
Defies a power which finds itself disgraced
As more and even more stand alongside:
In silence far too loud to be denied.
In stillness which begins to turn the tide.
