Poem: Ali

                         
It was not one day
not
butterflyfloatParkinson’s
beestinging
this giant of a man
pretty and swift
inspiring all to resist
worth
race wars of “the white man”
living
Muslim for peace
brother to all
it is not one day
not worth
taking in this spirit
dancing with words
human to human
a man who stood up
conscientious
brought the draft

crashing down
