“Animals –> Humans Park” by Dan Lenart (read at magazine release event @ Central Library on April 17th)

In the downtown there is a large park
for people and animals
in the heart of the core
I was there recently to see the poor, the impoverished,
the down-on-their-luck camping out
I walked among the marginalized and forgotten,
the seemingly helpless and apparently hopeless

Without a light at the end of the tunnel, there are few options
Desperation drives these occupiers
politicians conspire with police to wipe the slate clean
but then again there’s tomorrow for those who dream

Light a candle

pass a secret with a whisper

wink to a passing friend

nod to a comrade

salute a revolutionary.
