Eighteen democratic governments, I heard today,

In the Americas alone,

Have been covertly opposed by the CIA.


“We have to stop this madness,” said the man

In the radio.


I was posting to the General Ledger at the time.

I had to stop.


You know,

At any given moment I can see the world’s pain

In the scenes that then surround me. But,

There’s danger in thinking and feeling and knowing.

I fill my mind instead with people’s

Postal codes: K7H 3N6


My dad says it’s always been like this -

The world.


I feel like every time’s the first time

When I stop and

Look at it.
