Right Now
Con/Jur/d, 4/1/2022

We arrived here
        right now

Don’t hide behind evolution

we get it,
really, really we do

Hard not to be an apologist,
    when murderers, war criminals
decide how you move,
how you groove,

the trick,

they don’t know we just stepped through
    gate(less), past(less)
            we move forward

A joyous greeting
on all our lips,

What were we doing?
Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Who are you?

We don’t know,

We just arrived here
        right now

Hi Juris,  I read this this morning in your email.   I have to admit, I loved the illustrations that accompanied it but reading now without photos breaking it up, it is more powerful. 

You inspire me.

Juris, this caught my attention at the very beginning, so here I am for a re-visit. I love the message: Don't blame us. We don't know. We just got here.

Anyway, I thought this was poetry month. Where did everybody go? I don't know, I just got here.

Tony 🙃🙂
