For Binayak Sen

Love/despair
combo causes pure
anxiety as
cool weather
stays, nipples stick out, no spring

in Gwangju:
ice water wanders
freezing coast
dwellers, causing flip-
switch summer, torrential rain.

Today we
scurry to honor
a doctor, freedom
fighter, jailed
for helping untouchables

attempt to
retain land sought by
marauding
developers. They
starve even with the forest

so his help
guaranteed his arrest as
he doctored
them gratis, then tried
to save their meager

lifestyles. Steel
giant, Korea’s Posco
the culprit.
Globalized pirates
what more do you want?
