city of rats,
scurrying through the excess of the wasteful.
people clutching their past,
embracing their future,
grasping a new life.
Let freedom ring!
~ K. Blackburn
the soft, sweeping sound of silence
soothed her hurt heart.
hearing happiness,
she sorted through her sorrow.
                      plop. falling though the water.
                      plink. hitting the bottom.
                      kerplunk. another thrown in.
more change grants wishes.
more change eases her being.
~ K. Blackburn
