Found a sweet poem in my book today. it’s called “clothesline”

Image

you

us

them

those people

wouldn’t it be lovely

if one coule

live

in a constant state

of we?

some of the most 

commonplace

words

can be some of the biggest dividers

they

what if there was

no they? 

what if there 

was only 

us?

if words could be seen

as they floated out

of our mouths

would we feel no

shame 

as they passed beyond 

our lips?

if we were to string

our words 

on a commmunal clothesline

would we feel proud 

as our thoughts 

flapped in the

breeze?

-Marilyn Maciel
