All or None


(The Question of Tomorrow)

            For Emmett Till & Trayvon Martin

With rivers
To cross
& crosses
To bear:

Will our predilection
To indelible dreams
Riding tides of tomorrow
Keeping us afloat
Just above the undertow

Ever be forged
In equality for us
All, not just some?
(& if not all…then none).
