"They Look at Us," by Eli Siegel, founder of Aesthetic Realism

Here is a poem about two of the men I respect most:

They Look at Us

Martin Luther King
Is with John Brown.
Look up: you'll see them both
Looking down--
Deep and so wide
At us.

You can read Eli Siegel's note to his poem at the Aesthetic Realism Online Library.
