Liberty Rd.

Some feeling of consistency, some democracy,

a few pennies


hidden in the dirt –



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.
