Donations among oceans
The monied At land tick
a box to be told stories,
of a currency current Canary sung.
South to North money courses,
Can the currency current turn?
For extraction and how it now flows
is osmosis inverse and impossible.
Seas of pleas of charities
will build a golden ark to carry forth your cash,
And land on shore with mighty marketing splash
to send you a postcard, of a lovely posed photograph.
The winds trade whispers indirect
from someone whose ship passes at night,
No decisions of trajectory made on either side,
With just guilt submerged in debited terms.
So instead find a connection,
A network of affection,
Of reality built in solidarity
which reaches across oceans.
For money donations are perhaps
the only way we can do distant care,
Not to be spent by the international NGOs,
but by those living just right there.
