a love song for the PHILIPPINES

there is always hope
A SONG FOR THE PHILIPPINES
as long as
there is
breath
there is
hope.
as long as
there is
a servant’s heart
there is
love.
breathing
hearts
can right any world,
comfort any wound,
and
sing a common song.
as long as long is long,
let us
breathe
a common song.
a servant's heart
(from the cross bred banquet of yolantha, the new Maya
Angelou, seasoned with Gwendolyn Brooks, bathed in Langston Hughes, peppered with Angela Davis, sprinkled with Mother Teresa, doused in William Shakespeare, rolled in Edgar Allen Poe, embellished with Anne Sexton, and anointed with the blood of the Christ)
