un.feeling

if you had a heart you cried if
you had a heart you shouted out
against the unspeakable 
horror if you

if you had a heart it broke and maybe 
you could not control yourself 
for a while

grieving these systemic patterns 
you could not bear to remain

orderly
calm
respectable
peaceful

out on the streets
where a drop became many
a stream became a river 
an ocean of

feeling
against the unfeeling

dredging up a particle of hope
there to see where
we were not
alone
