"THE POOR WILL ALWAYS BE WITH US"
CARRY MY EMOTIONS IN A BROWN PAPER BAG
my friends who worked for Einstein's Bagels
packed the day old bagels in a black plastic bag
so they and i could siphon them to homeless
hiding in the bushes outside the Library
Soon,Mobile Loaves &Fishes came with real meals
Soon,the APD moved them on(no restrooms)
has it always been this way?
We have friends from Syria who share
their loss of homeland and why they are here.
All their professional degrees mean nothing as taxi drivers and hair dressers
Another life saved,another life lost-just like stories and memory loss
PW Covington(poet of truth)went to Standing Rock-experienced
sound warfare,noise barrages,lights shining all night
brought out prison life/PTSD/combat stress
His heart is @Standing Rock,but his body is in hospital
Winters have come before.Been more/or less.They will come again
We are always looking for a Brighter Future.Dark Mirror.
