“And these children that you spit on
as they try to change their worlds
are immune to your consultations
they’re quite aware of what they’re going through.” ~ David Bowie, Changes

So many people mired in independence
lashing out their projections
lost in an autonomy of separation.
It’s us versus them. To exclude is
the only safety. The fireworks erupt
when the silenced speak
a declaration of new freedom
in this global interwoven space.
The once reliable guidelines —
handed down by fearful ancestors
who stole land and people or
were stolen themselves — are falling
to the wayside. The earth is shrugging
off the superfluous and we can stay
in the gravity of this moment
if we speak our truths
and listen to each other
with deep compassion. See the triggers
in ourselves so we can reflect
space, the deep, inviting now
swimming lovingly between us
whether we acknowledge it or
overwhelmed by this chaos
simply keep firing our loaded
fears on the innocents
who are beings
buried alive in our careless
rush for more, more, more
of what we cannot use
and only leave us empty.
Empty to finally hear the poets
calling from their morning pages
and the mystics claiming
the marketplace. Authentic dialog
in we-space as we parse our words
to land well in each other’s hearts.
