Mural in the eyes

2 eyes of

Sky and

Water

 

Passing over

Evicted flesh

Of the sacred body

 

Scooped of

Light

 

Left for dead

In unblinking

Florescent pools

 

The evicted eyes

Evicted heart

Evicted limb

Evicted tongue

 

The murdered mural

Of our skin, the murdered

River of our skin

 

Evicted by the

Color of no

Color

 

By the movement

Of no

Movement

 

Evicted eyes that

Cry stories in

A thousand colors

That dry into the

Stone carved history

In our faces

 

That saw who got

Born on a morning

That blended into night

In a mural that filled the

Lungs with the light

Of our first song

 

Evicted eyes

Pulled from an

Evicted face

 

Evicted teeth

Hair

Nails

Dermis

Noses

Ears

 

Laying under

The foundation of

Houses that were

Once ours

 

Our bodies rising

Up with evicted eyes

That see everything
