At times like these, and there have been too many
Times like these
I would like for time to
To return bullets to the mouths of guns,
To stream blood spilled on floors
To its rightful place
To pull fully loaded 757’s back from
The Twin Towers,
To reverse all the effects
Of war, famine, pestilence,
Violence, abuse, bullying, ignorance
Racism and apathy
I am broken to remember this:
We live on this side
