<Nov. 25/15.> I’m wondering if some of us feel a little as though maybe somebody somewhere spilled (or tried to spill) a big pail of white-out on us.
Tried to cover us up
Forget about us
We don’t matter to them
& to Them (with a capital T)
Actually, I think we are legion!
I think there must be soooo many of us with white-out all over us
Maybe it’s all of us?
But let’s not go overboard here.
It is personal
& it is political
very very political
but it’s also kinda late in the game, hmmm?
I just gave 3 bucks to a guy who probably feels invisible a lot of the time
I was kind
dug into my wallet
But it’s clear it wasn’t just money he was after
He wanted to stop being invisible
For a moment or two
I expect the white-out just about chokes him, most days
I’m invisible too
In certain, uh, circumstances
At certain times
Not gonna lie, I find this hard
It sucks, really sucks, you know?
I know it’s too late now
To rescue a future
For this messy destructive species of ours
But we do still have today
We woke up
Got out of bed
The sun is shining!
:) :) :) :)
We’re still here
Let’s not be invisible
Or ask anyone else to be, either
No more white-out!
