Keep Her Breathin’ – Vivian Zems (Smell the Coffee)

A pregnant world screams
as empathy rides through cities
buoyed by indignation
while ignoring sophistication
and savoir faire

A heavy world screams
as her labour groans
cause scales to fall away
from blinded eyes
unstopping ears along the way

An expectant world screams
while we coax her to keep breathin’
as the raw truth is born
