Maidan, Kyiv

Maidan, Kyiv

The snow in Budapest
           the snow in Berlin
the snow in Vienna
           colder than the snow that fell
in Independence Square
           on the streets lined with
photos of the young men
           and women shot by snipers
perched on the roofs
           of government buildings
their warm red innocent blood staining
           the immaculate white snow
