it may take longer

We hold our breaths over bridges, not
under tunnels -
when passing hospitals not cemetaries.
Blow a kiss to the sculpture garden each passing.
He believes in sustainable actions.
"We should not partake

He tells me - "everyone races to prove that the world revolves around them."
I tell him how they haven't even gotten that far.
They are the sun, and me and you are the flora which grows from their existence.
