Red - From April 2012

RED - Magpie 113

Red Roofs by Marc Chagall


The blood of martyrs
drenching our history
coloring our ethics
our souls.

We come in memory
laying our offerings
at the foot of myth
a crusade we do not want.

So much blood
the future cannot absorb
a jihad of our ancestors
we cannot escape.

J. Binford-Bell
April 2012
