POEM: "Letter From My Apartment, Oct. 3, 2014"

Letter From My Apartment, Oct. 3, 2014

Love predates nationalities
Wind originates beyond the sky
Earth has water older than the sun

Still things will travel faster than light
(I could go on but you're grateful I won’t)
No one lives in caves though we might as well
A poem of white is no more the absence of colours
Than a poem of black includes them all forever
And though a red umbrella is small protection
Against the ravages of teargas in Hong Kong
A bottle of water applied to the eyes will help.
