They / Them / He / Him
Beneath eyes of overwhelming wonder,
I suggest we notice.
Step off the line,
Forget where they are,
Lose the path,
Forget the path.
Raise your arms above your chest,
But the Heads droop below,
Illuminated by silver screens,
Leaving behind the ideas of yesterday,
What could be today?
And I reach my hands to the sky.
