1968 Redux

Life Magazine

The whole world is watching!

Then was a
sense of possibility,
a crack in the
doors of perception,
opening to new worlds,
glimpsed for a moment.

Then died quickly,
murdered by the media,
surveillance,
the police, money.

Everything changed.
Nothing changed.

The doors closed.

But those worlds
still remain,
beckoning some
to seek
something else,

to say no to must,

hoping the doors
will open again:

new ways
for new days.
