Riot

IMG_1169.jpg

In a Turkish cafe
on Kingsland Road
with a new subletter
born in East Berlin

Riots, as promised
But he’s reassuring
The crowd is safe
Takes one look and is off

under barricaded door
onto the street
Chairs and donor knives
are wielded as law

No cops, no order
but volcanic rage
paying no mind to us
as we sneak through the blaze
