a poem by Joshua Brown

Clear! Shouts to the three man

Hearts beating into the building

Clear! Shouts to the twelve men

Hearts beating so fucking thrilling

I looked down the hall and went

Heart beating to the bleeding eye

I looked down the hall and sent

A bullet through that man's thigh

Clear! To the beat of the drumming

A march to the interior, a force

Clear! Broken men at last gunning

Into someone's home and worse

I dreamed of a peaceful utopia

A kingdom of heaven on earth

I woke to a cold sweat in fuchsia

A pink nightmare of my worth

Clear! it was to me their sentence

Decision made by women gaudy

Clear! Their justice punitive hence

My wilderness calls sinners body

Thanks so much for reading my poetry! "Fuchsia Utopia" was written in Denver, Colorado on December 4, 2022 while I was on my way to attend the services at Messiah Baptist Church. Read my last poem "Criticize Power" which is about the relationship between Jesus and David. It's a beautiful articulation of the differences between love and acquiescence.
