The World in our Hands, Tombstones on our Minds

We heal the wounds of broken-boned love. We savage the truth with razor-sharp tongues. Open hearts, locked doors. Double-dutch and double-crossing. Women claiming their power. Men behaving like children and children that are stone-cold killers. People rioting to protect civil rights. Others quoting the bible to justify evil. Hot coffee, cool jazz. Suicide and self-denial. Babies babbling wildly brilliant ideas before being hogtied by conformity. Meditation and mediation. Fingers caressing skin, while other fingers hover over a doomsday button. We have the world in our hands and tombstones on our minds.
