Liberty Blvd.

Some feeling of consistency, some democracy,

a few pennies

 

hidden in the dirt –

sun

 

I have been in love

before, but never so much

 

in wonder.  I need your eyes

now more than ever,

 

baby.  This is what Palestinians want

on the other side of the world, as they fight

 

tear gas and tyranny – in Ferguson, we took our cues…

And the wildness of young adulthood

 

still calls to me, like the scars of adolescence

and tremulations of childhood

 

that brought me here.  Sitting down

to write, as the acid rain

 

begins to fall,

I could see now – beyond the dreams –

 

I’d been white knucklin’ it

for a while.
