>THERE IS NO MAN WHO IS NOT MY BROTHER
THERE IS NO WOMAN WHO IS NOT MY SISTER
THERE IS NO MAN WHO IS NOT MY BROTHER
THERE IS NO WOMAN WHO IS NOT MY SISTER
THERE IS NO MAN WHO IS NOT MY BROTHER
THERE IS NO WOMAN WHO IS NOT MY SISTER
THERE IS NO MAN WHO IS NOT MY BROTHER
THERE IS NO WOMAN WHO IS NOT MY SISTER
THERE IS NO MAN WHO IS NOT MY BROTHER
THERE IS NO WOMAN WHO IS NOT MY SISTER

Let me dissolve here and float
as a mist
down by the river
(thereby stripped of every possession but love)
and encompass all my Family;
quieting crying children,
softening the hearts of quarreling lovers,
jamming guns and
calming the angry blood
of a million cornered youths–
Shhh!
Listen…
