Spotlight

When someone
Is lost or running
From the Law,
We shine spotlights
Onto the ground
From choppers
In the dark skies.

When a new bar, or strip
Joint, or movie theater
Opens up we shine
Spotlights up into
The dark skies from
The ground.

God must be so confused.

I wonder if in a moment of
Humanity He freezes and
Raises His arms.

As if we might arrest Him.

Cuz He knows, no one
Runs from the Law.

Not even His Baby.
