Black Umbrellas

A violence on the scene
Through all the smoke
Buzzards and wet vultures
From teardrop crystals
To the sheets of rain
Cutting me
Or is it blades again?
Again, there are the blades.
Some friends taught me faith,
Others troll through robberies of the Holy Ghost Parades
in unlucky towns.
There are no celebrations
In double barrels, in pollution.
In chains, fading cliffs
Some friends are still walking by churches with black umbrellas
A matter of sacrifice.
