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 –
                      when 

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 –
	     diary
   		              of what was happening
