G 20 in Canada

Camera is the reflective eye —
in the calm when deep freeze
has congealed events.
Police car bonfires are extinguished,
the black surge creeps the shores
of another country.
Instigators, captured on film
and filmed are targeted
because they targeted.

Spring creeps snowdrifts,
patio chairs sprout downtown,
the election is near,
we’re safe for another season,
the hunt now goes for votes,
dissenters at rallies.

Don’t ever think the country
is the country and nothing will ever change.
