jacaranda

it’s the first of june
and the morning is quiet
the sun is shining
and the jacarandas are abloom

but last night was a different story
groups in hoodies stalked the streets
carrying baseball bats and crowbars
leaving no receipts

but it’s morning now
it’s the start of new day
jacaranda flowers dry on the sidewalks
how did everything go astray?
