Seven billion people in the world. With that many people, there is no viewpoint . . . no matter how horrible . . . that does not exist somewhere. The guy you talked to actually said "sorry," which is more than you'd get from most. I'm glad it didn't bother you guys too much.
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone
just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
