for john b-r

a move made either to the right

or to the left

this 1st of may

my heart did jump out of my chest

as i watched the police chopper

and mounted police

then with a firm step down

to the street

begs the author

to intercede

this concrete grass asphalt and trees

very little. more police presence than occupiers. the radicals where in oakland, i gather. at least that was what was reported on most of the newsfeeds i saw.

still it was an odd feeling to have many cops, mounted police and a police chopper around. no riot police at all. at least from what i saw. i think most of the action as taking place at the state capital which was a few blocks away.
