"Trouble in Mind" #5

         (for “all that goes to make a breach of law”)

The somebodies have no body,
though some of them perform
the body nobody has.
Everybody else that counts counts
numbers piling up upon each other
like bones that rattle in pockets here & there.
Bodies stiff in blue, khaki, or camo
make nobodies turn their pockets inside out.
And there in that act, the body
of resistance is born
when the nothing you see is shown to be
their “corpus delicti.”
