They gathered at daybreak
saying they were now
putting aside all memories
of past wrongs
and old prejudices

grinning with refrained pain
they filled the air
with a strange fragrance
a mixture of silence 
and resentment

and when you kissed them 
a warm and friendly good morning
instead of lipstick 
on your cheeks
there was blood

Claude Lopez-Ginisty
