Stark Light
the lilac leaves
a young man insists
on justice, grieves
the homeless ones
he meets at
the train station
stark light
I listen   impossible
to move on it
we hear about wars
starting up
pray for an end
to the violence
stark light   at noon
cars shine in the heat
I grieve for the world
and getting older
listen to the young
their laments
for future decades
  - Judy Katz-levine
