do not stand up for them,
then, who will ?
if YOU do not push back when their potential
is bottled and sealed,
who will ?
teach them how to stand up
when they u n f o l d
into the future,
if no one will listen to them,
then, ultimately, what will it take ?

There is a picture on the outside
of my windshield
black and white
And the images move like shadows,
with the crossing light
And I touch the memory with warmth
and with fingertips,
As the frost
spirals out, reveals the oncoming—
And she wakes me before I crash.
