Angels*

Angels with dirty faces
Offer insights into disgraces,
Actions and words the gestalt of affairs
Reflecting the infinite ways they care

Angels in plain attire
Are equally likely to inspire
Not with public acts of fashion
But rather through spontaneous compassion

Angels in uniform
While required visually to conform
Nonetheless may think alone
Enacting humanity of their own

Angels thus far undeclared
Will always find their courage somewhere.
Love enacted where little was shown
Wings appear where none were known

 

 

*in light of the overwhelming human response to recent and devastating events.
