A State answers by talking to itself:
Justice, Rule of Law, it says, are identical
And occupy one space. The way a lake
Where men fish through holes
In the ice, thaws and absorbs in the end
Each distinct, accidental, blood-stained
Snowflake, the state erases and humiliates.
from "The Dead"
Kenneth Rosen
pg. 63, Cost of Freedom
