To Be a Hero








Ai Weiwei Study of Perspective in Glass (Violet), 2018-2019

Turn your tank away.


Holster your arm.


Keep the poison in the vial


Above all, do no harm.



It’s hard to be a hero


for it can mean


setting your life to zero


with not much in between.



Heroes are especially needed


when truth is in short supply


when humanity finds itself on the edge,


not really knowing why.



This is where we are and will be


now and as far as we can see


unless heroes succeed in defying the crooks and spies 


that seek to imprison us with their lies.
