LET THE HEAVENS FALL ON THEM

LET THE HEAVENS FALL ON THEM
Alexander Martin Remollino

And after all that was said and done,
the uniformed night beast from a foreign land
walks, free as a mad dog unleashed.
The young woman wronged once more wakes
on the bed of garbage along the boardwalk —
stripped almost to the bone,
raped — this time by her rapist’s jailers.

They have seized the scales of the blindfolded woman
and tilted these in the criminal’s favor.
Let justice be done to the young woman twice raped.
Let the heavens fall on her rapist’s treasonous jailers
with our wrath’s irresistible gravity.
