For Troy Davis, a poem by Charles Bane, Jr

For Troy Davis

You were not a monster,

but gold robed and smiling,

shyly looked directly at a

camera lens and held a thumb

up as Emmet Till might have

done if he had earned a degree;

I wish I could have set you

free; there are flocks of you

migrating in the long and

practiced curves of boys who know

the difference between a cage

and the beat of air beneath

uncreased wings.
