Today's poem is by Jill Osier
Brief Study of Parades
1) There must be lifting.
2) There must be so many kinds of shoes.
3) Acknowledge this! Acknowledge this with music!
4) We clap, we speak in waves, we remember the curb.
5) We are a terrible speed.
6) We are the only people we've been trying to be.
