Last Dispute by Noel Negele

My best friend’s father
Got knifed outside his house
By his neighbor

They had a dispute over
A single yard of land
Between their houses

The knife went through his heart
And he died instantly
In front of his wife

The neighbor was arrested
A while after—
A short 57year old man
With a dumbfounded look on his face

One life destroyed
One erased

A family trying to make sense
Of the violence and the blood
Dousing the earth like rain

And a single yard of land
No longer claimed by anyone.
