Lay your flag on my wall, their bodies, those streets
Baghdad. Beirut. Sydney. Paris.
Name the things that terrify you
Jihad. Sharia. Muslim. Refugee.
Inside cities crowded with impromptu shrines
Lay your flowers. Words. Tears. Prayers.
Cry quietly or howl with rage
Plead. Applaud. Dismiss. Condemn.
This is how we grieve.
