As children we draw chalk lines to
Practice boundaries and the application
Of rules in games like lessons for
Living well and living
And here we are just one big
Rain away from the practice the ways
We’ve settled upon compromise
Which isn’t so much compromise as the
Consistent toe playing with
Erasure marks
The mischievous smirk of power
Of laughter in the face
Of injustices
