Open Letter to the Students and the Teachers

the confluence of forces
leading to this door opening;
simple to decode.

earnest teachers
eager students
humans

artful projections
simultaneously accurate
doggedly imprecise
both sides

do we choose to take aim and accuse
or do we choose the lens of compassion
in both directions

we acknowledge our blame
and all roles in our pain
accept ourselves
accept our humanity
carry baskets of forgiveness

unrelentingly unite with one final prayer
may our actions bring us everything we need
may your actions bring your everything you need
