Hope Floats

Lamentations
9"x12" mixed media on paper

Occasionally,
you will spy Hope
drifting just beneath the moon,
watching through her fingers
as Society chooses yet again
to argue semantics
instead of agreeing
to be decent people

But unfortunately,
it just may take
a global cataclysm
for some of us 
to stop fighting over
Crayola shades
to acknowledge
we all bleed red.
