Is that FISH?

That looks like Laurence FishburneIMG_1275

No, it’s Giuseppe Ungaretti,(1888-1970), the  late italian modernist poet, critic and essayist, born in Egypt and raised by a Nubian nanny who wrote the following poem, No More Crying Out, a poem which I feel,  reflects the present American social climate concerning the slaying of Black men by police.  This photo bears an uncanny resemblance to actor Laurence Fishburne, once, affectionately nicknamed “Fish”

No More Crying Out

by Giuseppe Ungaretti
Cease murdering the dead.
If you hope not to perish, if you
Want sound of them again,
Stop crying out, cease
The crying out of it.
They have barely heard whispering,
No more that the increase of grass
Happy where no man passes.
