Cigarettes and Ice Cream Cover Hudson Biko JPG.jpg

the wind is fast

and the ache is sour

in the air.

the cars are rushing by

and there’s a quiet hope

that they are all

headed somewhere.

it is all so


and so little.

all at once.


it will take a while.

to let go.

of this all.

but I am starting.
