this is what it sounds like…

We used to gaze up at the stars with awe and wonder….
We struggled to reach the moon and paid in full the high cost to befriend the cosmos.

We used to speculate about our unmapped oceans with all it’s untapped wet mysteries.

We used to grapple with our Earth’s strange phenomena from bioluminescence to the Bermuda Triangle to all kinds of unconventional cloud incarnations. We used to be curious about this dangerous world we inhabit with all manner of plants, animals and environment like tenuous roommates.

Now? Now we grapple with racist billionaires and speculate about millionaires in elevators.

“How can u just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold?

Maybe I’m just 2 demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father 2 bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied

Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry.”
