a stand a day for 1 year

"from the berlin station platform
to the markets of fruit and beyond
from the dust of yesterday's storm
to the tomorrows' morning yawn

capturing moments with hands wet
slipping gone never to return to you
looking back always to forget
memory's fading unrecognizable tattoo

against the rushing flood waters of time
through city streets like the rio grande
alone together each others' rhyme
alone together we the citizen stand"
