what i see today
Do Humans Care ?

“Humans never fail
to disappoint”……Except when
push comes to shove; I can’t
begin to say how, I see now
how, in the teeth of
this nightmare, I see Every town,
Every city [ where yesterday, we all
walked alone, sealed in our earbuds’
worlds, yesterday Every pair of eyes
tipped-down in Our lonely smartphone prisons,
Each (of Us) in a cell of our own…, (…but) ]
today, I see them All lift
their eyes, lift the spirits of those
who we Now See are suffering
more; and in That One Moment, I see Us shaking
off our modern cocoon-lives and returning
to village-life where Everyone knows
Everyone’s Needs and in that moment We return
to the Humans we were before time
and progress split us apart, restricted Us
from proper caring, made Us pretend
We don’t care, don’t feel; But, We
Humans, We Do Care.
