19.9.15 Histories

Histories make and record.
A universality able to create a universe
yet not enough to separate us all
or be a God on it’s own.
Enough to kill any man and
Every man who has been a part of it.
Each one that built it and
was built from it.
They’ll read and reread
to learn of you
dead man and each
step you took. But never
you specifically You
as a people brought together
and generalized.
Histories write themselves
these days. As the ways of
Oral texts and stories told
have turned to squiggles on
screens and screams on
streets of struggle
scared and scrapped and scraped
from the bottom of the barrel.
Where you sit waiting and wanting
wondering when your history will be
Writ.
