Poem 4 for 2015

Flashpoint

I’m crying all the tears
because the Cops
on my Netflix
are negotiating
with
revenge kidnappers,
distraught wives with knives
even
A Stockholm syndrome Tatiana Maslany!

The team
sees the worst moments of people’s
lives
and treat them all
as human.

with
Crisis Prevention Interventions and Trauma informed Care
and person first language
and mediation
it’s
a more extreme roller coaster
of what I do
every day
it’s
a overdramatized version of
of the lives of
our neediest students

it’s
a reminder
it all matters.

Yesterday’s prompt was to write a love (or breakup) poem without using the word love or love poem cliches.
