"Bay Area People"

“Bay Area People”

Conscious connectivity
Bay Areability
grooving & maneuvering
to the crowd-pleasing sounds
of revving up
evolutionary agility,
where the idea of conquest
is a contest
& we strive
to rise
~ eyes of the hawk
hearts of the dove ~
Getting down & dirty,
but keepin’ it real
We reflect
on bygones
& the upsets
Restless & yet nesting
in our Bayside aviary
no fence too high over which to carry
the throngs of our songs
salty, sweet, & sour
we don’t allow time
to define our hours
Yours & mine
year round
& chiming in to:
& rethink
all we’ve been given
to celebrate & recalibrate
Always willing to:
make the next move
this situational misuse
of moments that are best used
to remove
the barriers,
we Bay Areaers relinquish nothing
but the stale energy
that, occasionally, builds up
like walls in which to cage us
But we are timeless & priceless
& so you will not cage us!
