For A Time

 For A Time

poem by e.e.cane

Jan. 10, 2021


where have they gathered?

hope lingers like

fragrance after footsteps

freedom steadily sweet

fading


came across america

imprisoned by fortune

many colors bold, shining, 

the success of innocence 

and happy-speak


it's pink now

the mist of forgetfullness

and betrayal

skin exploding new standards

this is the way

humanity lurches

cries and, 

for a time,

remembers
