Poem : Symbols

By L. Ramakrishnan

tanktops at pride
fundraiser dinner pendants
subaru bumper stickers
massachusetts weddings
buttons worn to
poetry readings
i look at these
interlocking symbols
now and only see
two bodies interlocked
in embrace
charred by despair
knowing no other way
for togetherness
to endure
