stop sign

the lady with the blue umbrella

is merely a road sign, remember.

until we walk over and find there

is not one.

had difficulty sleeping, thinking.

of you all.

the hurricanes.

thinking of you all.

the genocide.

spelled carefully

you all

at war.

all who are ill,


i went on the bus, saw the mud

from the festival. talked to you

who got lost and fed the homeless.

read some road signs elsewhere.
