As the year comes to a close, What ‘magical tool’ would you like to implement in the coming year?
The ‘wheel’ turns for another year; Do you stand in the center of your life?
What does the center of your life look/feel/sound/taste like?
How do you imagine your life to be?
The line grew at the grocery
Waiting for poverty to pay
for milk, and taco shells
Flakes of filth powdered the air
We all inhaled him in his struggle
Impatient to not be his witness
Our hunger couldn’t match his
I felt his humiliation rise to indifference
Past the point of caring if we knew
If we knew of his nothing in our everything
And the line grew while the cashier
held her patience in kindness
To his hard times and empty pockets
Jobless calloused hands searching
in the lonely winter nothing
Twenty dollars to feed a moment
Twenty dollars to get the line moving
Twenty dollars to assuage my heart ache
Twenty dollars for tacos for his visiting son
He tells me in his thank you
