Unanswered Cries

Do you need to be born in Africa or Haiti

to be saved

What about the single mother in the ghettos

of Detroit

Will an actor or politician or philanthropist

deem you worthy

Of a rescue from a situation that as assuredly


Cable TV asks for your money for the starving

third world

While lost souls in your shadow are homeless, crying

—in plain sight


(Norristown Pennsylvania: January, 2021)
