Two peaches

Two peaches

I listen to the voices
       out on the street
so animated
       and full of life
and it strikes me
       that we’re all survivors
driven by so much
       purpose so much
energy so much
       love

we get up every day
       and do our stuff
and fight the good fight
       and take the rough
with the smooth
       and I’ll paint
a couple peaches
       on a white background
and hand them to you
       and hope that you like them
and recognize that though
       they’re not really peaches
or at least they’re
       the best I could do
that they were painted
       with love for you
