ghandi crickets

ayatollah khomeini –

                     told people       to –
                     incite a protest,
            to go onto the roof tops	   
you know,     nonviolent protest,

and scream           um

god is great –
            ~ allah akbar

and to scream it only at night – - 
          - -
          - so that –

people     were
                         were listening

it would be like crickets - -
               - the crickets at  night,
	and just hearing,	and that feeling like –

people – joining in, and,
            communicating with each other -

writing down
                  like their –

their nation’s –
   		              of what was happening
