berlin wall 2009

history spaced across moments suspended
or a movement of color
shading every emotion
lines drawn across
tie together the complications
how one human can hurt another
how many destroy millions
sontag says this is what humans are capable of
and we see it, study the images
of brutality

transformed here
a material space both of history
and a living present, changing

away from popular tourist destinations
just this structure
along the water
next to a bridge

new artists paint over history
never forget
keep moving in every direction

this is what humans are capable of
new lines drawn
in color
paint a composition of chords
