Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, by Ross Gay – keep on, #RebelliousLawyering

Time for a poem.  From Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude:

 

“Soon it will be over,

which is precisely what the child in my dream said,

holding my hand, pointing at the roiling sea and the sky

hurtling our way like so many buffalo,

who said it’s much worse than we think,

and sooner; to whom I said

no duh child in my dreams, what do you think

this singing and shuddering is,

what this screaming and reaching and dancing

and crying is, other than loving

what every second goes away?

Goodbye, I mean to say.

And thank you. Every day.”

Excerpted from Ross Gay’s “Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude.”
