A CHANGE NEEDS TO OCCUR

 

A CHANGE NEEDS TO OCCUR

 

The shout has gone out from the mountain tops, echoing against ranges as it flows out of Ricola horns:

A CHANGE NEEDS TO OCCUR

 

The men have gathered around the campfire and the women around the churn. Now is time, they shout:

 

A CHANGE NEEDS TO OCCUR

 

The animals run for cover, the voices sounding like earthquakes, distant. From some bushes, a Grizzly:

Airwaves sputter, spit, spring. Breakers break, popper pop, lockers lock. A single end to end burner:

A special session is called, table tops are struck with first palms then gavels. H B 282 is proclaimed:

Blacksmiths strike metal in harmony, cobblers clap leather like hands, deskmakers make desks loudly:

A national meeting is called, everyone is mistaken for strangers, but everyone agrees, holding placards:

 

A CHANGE NEEDS TO OCCUR

 

Rooms are rented, group rates, at the Sheraton. Possibilities are discussed poolside, over mojitos:

Finally, everyone walks into one room, an infinite chair is sat in, coats are unbuttoned, proceedings:

 

A CHANGE NEEDS TO OCCUR

 

Everyone sits in the infinite chair, a few get up to refresh coffees. Everyone sits, assuming the future, looking to the obvious:

Everyone sits, no one even shuffles feet or breaks eye contact. Nothing happens. It's not awkward, it's factual; look somewhere else:

Everyone sits and waits. Solutions are not theirs. Everyone is afraid. Everyone sits and asks permission to trust in someone else. Is someone worth trusting coming? Is someone worth trusting already here?
