resist
With acknowledgements to the photographer for use of this image

comes down
to a street
the odds
stacked against
the few,
where reins
are wielded
to topple the
many
under hoof
and clanking
track,
on that
street
played,
spat and
cursed upon,
comes down
to a day
where heart,
stone
and bricks
are hurled
mightily
against
the
gun,
for all
the little
we have,
hurled
against
that pipe
of dark,
hurled
in one
throw
of self,
heel
lifted
off the
ground,
that throw
to stand
by all
who
have
resisted
