Palm of My Hand

A Poem by Ty
"

Palm of My Hand

"
What do the Aztec walls of '68 Mexico think?
Stirred awake,
I've placed my face in palms,
A hymn would ring over church bells at dawn.
Those Aztec walls think the same
The blood inked balcony of Memphis would sing,
And oh he's, Been to the Mountaintop.
Revolution,
Revolution,
Revolution.

The student rebellion at the ‘68 Olympics in Mexico...Martin Luther King’s Memphis speech and assassination...watershed moments. You remind us so eloquently Ty. Your words are powerful, stark, inciting. You remind us we are on the precipice again. Your repetition of “Revolution” tolls like the bell of history. Great write my friend.

I feel there's more to this poem than I can get. But I like it! It's probably my obliviousness why I don't get the meaning. Nevertheless, it's a nice read! Thank you for entering my contest!

Normally, I don't care for poems that allude to other works/things/events, but looking past that, I like the imagery this piece conveys. I like that it seems dark throughout - without ever explicitly mentioning it. As another reviewer has mentioned, the repetition of the word "revolution" makes it all the more unsettling. It really prompts an internal revolt. I want to dislike this, but I also like this. Powerful write!

Brilliant! And yes, a revolution is needed over here in UK too!

It's time and thanks!
Absolutely necessary, AND your repetition of revolution is unsettling in a way that 110% fits this poem.

Thanks for submitting!

We need a revolution.
Okay, just checked.
Have to give thirty days notice.
Probably not bother now.

It's so inconvenient, really, what's the point of waiting? Anticipating a revolution is kind of coun.. read more
Revolution. We need one. New generation, too busy on cell-phones for revolution. Nice use of words and thoughts Ty. I liked them. Maybe, I will do a one man revolution? Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.
