Dark Knight

April 7

by Ethan Simon ’15

I was born in an alley

I lost what was most important to me in three fleeting moments

A ring of circular white evil round my mother’s neck

2 shots and a blow to a young boy

Now I watch my city

In it’s darkest hour I am called by a light in the sky

It is asked of me I bring to light my own demons

In cowl I know this city, I am what it deserves
