Except For Attica

My life prior to nine
is an unsolved mystery
Few pictures
and all memories
erased by an
undefined trauma
Save for one
The mind
ever odd
held tight to the sight
of a riot I saw
on grainy color TV
I was seven
It was ’71
Carnage at Attica Prison
in New York
Strange what a brain
deems noteworthy
