You are
equal to them.
You are one of them.
Worthy of a smile.
You are wearing
worthy clothes others
immured with respect.
You know how to keep
your troubles silent.
They don't need
to take too much
time with you.
You stand straight
not stooped. They
like you
They will walk
beside you.
It's not just
the vision of them
moving down
the street with
harmony on their faces
and the obedient dogs
parading. I imagine
a march of proud
creatures of the past
kept together with
elastic bonds that
stretch and bind.
