I am the Post-it note on the subway walls.
Canal Street: my body not yours,
Fathers – apologize to your daughters,
stay together, don’t give up,
Light and love to all.
Read me, write on me.
I am the Post-it note in office windows
multiplying pinks, blues, yellows, greens,
every color in between.
See me – the blue person in free fall.
How did this happen?
