GETTING THROUGH
 
empty storefronts
like lost teeth
 
time bubbles
 
hollow aftermaths
 
chains unlinked
folks gone home
some searching
 
they say that Davids topple Goliaths
and turtles take the race
 
yet getting through
is what makes us wonder
how much we can smile
with this gap-toothed expression
 
and how much we will gather for story,
for elbow grease, pooling our resources,
show how we cannot be kept
from banding together
