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.
