James Diaz writes

Dreaming Beyond This Bottom Line

road into town 
barren as the barrels
filled with rain
and the haunted hands 
of our fathers tilling 
fields without names
their bodies worn down 
likes stones
tied to the earth
if one lifted their face into the light 
just right they might imagine
it shined only for them
and in a better, kinder world
maybe it does.
