February 16, 2017, Prescott-
I work for someone who doesn’t entirely trust me,
and is constantly seeming to be under the gun.
I work with children who don’t entirely trust anyone,
and are each very much under siege.
I work in a community which thrives on trusting its own,
yet views the wider world with a flinty eye.
I am a native son of a country which is not sure who to trust,
yet asks the rest of the planet to go with its judgement.
I am a citizen of a planet which is getting more intimate,
and is entering a future which none can really know.
