If we all just cared for one another
I met a mother on the bike path in Somerville today
Her son showed me the garden plot they plant on.
What if instead of transactions, we expected care?
What if instead of you serve me, it was we serve us?
Not because we must,
But because we’re united in our recognition of one another’s humanity and dignity?
I don’t think I’m naive to dream of a world where this is possible.
I think i am brave enough
To create it
Brick by brick
In my tiny corner of the universe
