I know the putrid trail of betrayal and

I demand an accounting from Power I

am denied, because Power is Power, and I am

powerless seeking solidarity perpetually

groaning for a new world, awaiting

relief from soul burning, mind gamers, even a

new enlightenment, durable love, a rebirth–

a culture of truth, dignity of

shared equality, of united purpose, and of wonder.

Golden Shovel poetic form

See Lawrence Ferlinghetti, “I Am Waiting”

“and I am perpetually awaiting a rebirth of wonder”
