For the anonymous student

From Mont-Royal
four vultures
circled over McTavish and Sherbrooke.

In the McGill Bookstore
the women said Notre-Dame
withheld the name
of the student in surgery
who was beaten by police,
and the sociologist said
Le Village Gai
was the “perfect storm,”

but the rainclouds blew off
and orange clouds sprayed
from out of his fractured bone
to drench the island with his spirit.
