Poem for the Day: August 16th, 2021

There Should Be Flowers by Joshua Jennifer Espinoza
There should be more to life 
than disruption
and survival
but there isn’t.
There should be birds
singing your name.
There should be paintings
the size of skyscrapers
memorializing your body.
There should be love
for you
in everything.
There should be a billion women
jumping at the same time
to move the earth off its course.
There should be parties
to celebrate
the end of this world.
There should be flowers
to welcome
a new one.
