notes from the bench

what i pine to see

is more neo-soul


fewer neo-nazis

more humanists with

arms flung open wide

embracing those in need of shelter

like my ancestral brethren

i want to see them settled in…

“your own back yard”

what i yearn to see:

a future in which

family planning

is not

a moral issue

a future

where cities

are not

swallowed by the sea

is it too much to ask to salvage

what we still have left of this?

coffin-dodgers miss the point,

you won’t be here to witness it.
