Somewhere

Somewhere
I can find a rainbow
smuggled in like an overcoat
thrown across my shoulders
in chilly December.

Somewhere
I will see a dark window
where a winged angel sits cradling
a homeless soul on a grimy ledge
over D.C.’s VIP traffic.

Somewhere
maybe what we don’t yet know
will be all that is true power
faith beyond snip and tucked illusions
on venal wrinkling faces.

    I tried to get Carrie not to use this pic, but that girl do like she want. I like how you contrasted with the “VIP traffic.”

    Pssst, I think you will like Monday’s list!

    Very powerful! I particularly liked –

    Love this. A perfect contrast between assumed power and actual holding-back-the-chaos power. The substitution of cheap cruelty for actual power speaks to our own conceptual weaknesses.
