Umrah

Umrah (Atlanta is Evacuated 1864) 9/7

Think of it as sacred travel
a long line circling out of the city

Galaxy of families and things
circling that black hole that is civil war

Atlanta is gravity coming hard
you must break from the experiment

It is Umrah in reverse : kiss
center then trace your way out

The destination is opposite prayer
is fleeing the burning cross of Sherman
