A Fence in Wyoming (for Matthew Shepherd)

Two men found you sitting
at a bar in Laramie. Those

two men only know what
happened afterward. But

That night they became
predators, and you, prey

only because you happened
to be homosexual. Later

two men found you draped
on a fence in Wyoming.

And now you must taste
the earth of this State, because

they happened to murderously
hate.
