Do you have the heart
to tell a pinprick
of a truth
about a moment when you felt just enough
to lift a finger;

did it help?

I hope it was worth something;
not for money, of course
because your attention 
is all I asked 
could hope for

far be it
from anywhere
you see
a country you might like

strike a match
I mean flick a lighter
I mean turn on your phone
so we might see 
the look
on each face
across the world.
