6 pointed sight

listen only to this fabric
to know where you stand
lay it across their ground
this land is yours now
fold it neatly, careful not to tear or stain
for this flag is not the target
wrap it ‘round your eyes
so you don't have to see 
what you've done here

all you see is 
blue like the water you could have been
white: the desolation you impose
blue like the blood you still have in your veins
white violent sparks you hurl across lines
blue sky you’ve darkened to cover your tracks
white noise in your ears, can’t hear
don't want to

all they see is
red
blood red
handprints
because even holy fabric
can only cover
so much
