Mountain verse – December 5, 2014


politicians are race-baiting
pundits are race-blaming
police are race-fearing
people are losing the race –

as horrible as the narrative is,
it’s just a distraction, a diversion,
a misdirection of our attention –

the question that should haunt us all:
what is it that we should
really be paying attention to?
