Poem about the Attica prison uprising.

Halted at the edge, high on their hushed precipice, men whose names we have since learned,
Who choked, who wept, who fell on their knees in D-Yard as the helicopter dipped
And let its cargo of gas drift, lazy as smoke, quiet as cloud formations,
Across the rainy dawn..."
