Plant the seed

Future Life by David Gonzalez
Open the storage units
Unlock every second home
Distribute every safebox jewel
Take down the fences so any may pass
Burn the titles of your past
Invite the wild to backyards
and mark the dead with trees
Throw away your watches,
take the time you need
Scatter the riches written in
the ledgers of far-away banks
Wash your eyes with water and
look again
Plant the seed of your dream,
your heart, your care.
May your backyard be a garden for you,
for me, for all beings.
