#iamgrateful for parks and gardens
Me, sitting by the courts of justice
the Australian flag dances at half mast
the constant whoosh of falling water
where seagulls and humans alike
seek refuge from a southern sun
shouting in protest
through the clouds,
We are equal!
Clowns and false smiles
brand us in this moment
like the hot irons
of insensitivity and folly.
Should we listen? Maybe.
Should we do something? Probably.
But, no, we will sit in the park
and toast to OUR reality
let the sun leave its mark
a red mark on humanity.
