~XV. Children/Song of Life~

~soon after the turn of the century~
~Quodlibet won the Marija Cerjak award~
~for avant-garde/experimental writing~

~Quodlibet~
~The Hundred Bites~
~XV~

~never knew a preacher~
~who stood down easy~
~except those too timid~
~to stand up in the first place~
~it is a sad fact~
~that too many fathers & mothers~
~talk down to their children~
~there is so much~
~daughters & sons could teach them~
~they grow away from the knowledge~
~the why they are here~
~pigeonholed & block-dammed~
~encouraged to be all they can be~
~most of what they are not~
~naturally~

~XV. Children/Song of Life~

~listening to children’s voices~
~most anytime the all-day long~
~these whom never see a stranger~
~treads silently ‘neath the midst of them~
~a mourning service assembled~
~attended by bearers~
~one chosen spoken~
~of rabbits alive in the heath~
~children what they need to hear~
~no rambling list of qualifier quantifier~
~what you are & what you have become~
~need know only they are loved~
~each nomad seizes love on the run~
~a leaning toward moving spaces~
