Can – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” Malcom X

Can

Line in the sand confronts me,
faint as it is its silence mocks me
as I stand before it,
there is no ferryman,
no bridge of rhetoric 
can traverse it,
only the contrite are close,
but a person of integrity 
can easily cross.
