Harlem To Cannes

Those living in Harlem

want to move to Midtown

 

The people in Midtown,

to the Upper West Side

 

The Upper West Side,

to the Long Island Shore

 

The Long Island Shore,

to Aspen or Vail

 

Aspen or Vail,

to the Champs Elysees

 

The Champs Elysees,

to the beaches in Cannes

 

People will search for where

life can begin

 

A place that remains distant

and far out of reach

 

An excuse to look outward

and not in themselves

 

Theirs souls left in turmoil

—their hearts not at rest

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2018)
