The dead speak but we as a

people have forgotten how to

listen. We hold them in our

hands, they course thru our blood

they are found in the leaves of

the Koran, the psalms, the Torah,

the Constitution, the New

Testament. all revelations, all

poetry all the sacred books.

They send words of love and woe.

And we entwine their labors with

our own and form our own body of

ideas, of hope. Labor day

approaches. Let us now salute

our neighbor. His trials both

honorable and pathetic are our own.

So we can laugh and also weep. The

sheriff is dead long live the sheriff.

 

Patti Smith
