May Redness

Come May
and there’s greeting
in cloth and color
beret berating
the redness of defiance
defined and ill-defined;
come May
there’s flag and slogan
regurgitation and coinage
replaying of old themes
and words that seem new;
come May
and there’s redness
rising above man and market
flying over rally and march
as predictable
but ever so fresh
newer than other seasons
of protest and ritual

[Inspired by the photography of Ravindra Dharmatilleka]
