It might have been a miracle

to have survived the 60s

and all its first-time diversions


beckoning, daring the unknown—

full-grown children loosed

to explore the candy store


with the ambush of War

stealing the black and poor first,

green jungle hungry for more.


Abstract at best, the future

failed to kindle dreams

beyond the minefields.
