Rembrandt
Rembrandt
Love was lost and found in the tears.
A painted heart, crystalising our fears.

The democratic dishwashers,
With Kitchener approving, clock watchers

Sitting in groups, their eyes wide open,
Tear gas tearing them, a bloodshot token,

And hands in hands hands lands to bands
Of brothers, not sisters, drifting like sands,

A desert of lost partnerships
Masked by the haloed, sun-crowning eclipse.
