i have a new teacher named loki
neither of us will fill our base space
we cling to each other like scared children
and challenge each other because we know we should

but that's where we are at
so it seems to me

if i held a sign like yours
mine would read "afraid."

i can read between the lines
on your cardboard sign

if i weren't afraid i would say

instead i look ahead
separated by a pane of glass and nothing more
i have change
but will not let it go

every red light in this town
forces me to stop
and see
