Highgate Cemetery

His resting place is
constantly watched
One-eyed witnesses
around Marx’s tomb

at 30 frames/second
to corroborate those
radicals’ movements
between cold marble

and cracking granite
Plunderers – robbers –
aim their spray paint
on his entrenchment

and paint sauvistikas
instead of swastikas
Ignorance & politics –
they’re restless again
