the real riot

maybe the smoke
will dissipate
by then.

maybe their protest signs
will be in the trash.

maybe their windows
will be repaired.

maybe the agitators
will have gone home.

maybe the police
will be wearing body-cams.

maybe the rioters
will be out of jail.

maybe the sun
will be shining.

maybe all things
will be looking up
by then.

maybe.

but
what’s certain is
another
ferguson, misery.
