Take a Stroll Outside Yourself...

¡Hola mi Gente!
Today I will be in Jamaica, Queens, participating in a campaign (here) against racial profiling and police brutality…

Nows [XVI]

Take a Stroll outside yourself tonight
and gaze over your shoulder.

You will see yourself
taller than yesterday,
smiling more,
and quieter
than in those early years.

Watch your hands
as they touch me

It all happened behind your back:

A smug comfort settled in
that says you need me less
but want me more.

Take a giant step back
and see yourself
as others do,
for you must someday
learn that delicate art
of viewing your reflection
in all those eyes
your beauty has moistened.

-- Eddie
