Kerri Shying R # 258 - Reprise/al


it has taken thirty years or more
 for all the scrapes
the bruises   all the tears
the rents in trust to show

they say the little children
know not what we do

they say it wrong they say
it all in voices far too loud

it was too sustained
for you

I see you on the street I see you
often                       everywhere 

a figure
made of myth a ghost

without care 

I nod
you nod 

I am the hot voice
 of the past

you are
the scar

 we are the things
we failed to do
