the streets of Uvalde full of tears
tears over the loss of precious children
but also tears of the loss of a nation’s innocence
did we lose it on waldon’s mountain
or the streets of mayberry
or around our own dinner tables
or in the womb of the chapel
can it be found again

Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong
Teach your students colors,shapes, letters, numbers, teach them about life, and now keep them safe from guns
Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong, remember you are a teacher
Teach your students to not be afraid, yet in your heart you know the world is again...

Only now that its physical
The wars become visible
Certified verified news
Fighting for oil fighting for gold
Nobody wins we all lose
Controlled legal violence
One minute silence
Soldiers lost legs arms and lives
Exception for fighting
To young ones its frightening
You wonder why they carry knives
Politicians sniff coke
The systems a joke...

‘Seven times’ ~ A poem for my younger siblings
I have fallen in love seven times.
Seven pairs of eyes that blinked open
and looked back into mine.
My heart expanded into spaces
I did not know I had,
as your entire hand curled
around my single finger pad.
I no longer had but one shadow,
I smiled down to see now two.
Over the years,
your bodies changed and grew,
