A Prompt for our Time

James Baldwin:

“I always wonder

what they think the niggers are doing

while they, the pink and alabaster pragmatists, 

are containing 

Russia  

and defining and re-defining and re-aligning 

China,”

He asks where we stand.

Are we forever tied

to the Harvard trained

CIA hired cold warriors?

Are we willing to 

move towards a future

of not knowing,

with a possibility of

“Liberty and justice for all?”
