Gen Next


Sometimes you need to move seats,
change your view, to change
your mind.

I’ve spent 25 windowless years
in a heavily windowed building.

The work done gives me glimpses
of a different world, one much
kinder and more caring than
what flickers on television.

I see hope on the papers
I push. On display: small hands
and hearts about to alter everything.

Don’t fear the message of the moment
being broadcast … or the messenger.
The fleeting old. They are already lost.

Who I work for matters most.
I put my trust there, in their
Snap-ing fingers
and inclusive composition.

Sometimes you need to move.

Upward Mobility


The black, aluminum chair balanced
atop the weathered shed, legs
straddling the peaked roof.
Its cushioned seat looked enticing
even though the perch looked precarious.
With a wider view comes risk. Rising
takes audacity. She began her climb.
