    I sat there
    Staring at the Ivory Towers
    With their glass-enclosed
    External showers
    Exposing to the core
    Humanity
    .
    .
    .
    And
    Humanity
    Stared
    Back
    At
    Me

    I saw you
    In the middle of your
    Evening bath
    As waters of TRUTH
    Spilled over you
    …splashing the essence of you
    Anew

    I saw you
    Honey dripping off your
    Caramel coating
    Hoping against the blanketed sky
    To get beyond the loathing
    But knowing TRUTH
    Didn’t help me see
    With clarity

    Translucent skies
    Prevent my tomorrow
    From shining brightly

    I sat on the bank
    Of the river life
    Singing songs of praise
    To bygone days
    That will never be forgotten
    Yet, no one wants to
    REMEMBER

    Yesterday

    So, I sat there

    Remembering.
