In Paradox

To sit, able to eat a carrot in the gray light of late afternoon
on any continent, in any climate.
To buy peppers, lettuce, peaches all year long.
For milk, caught and pasteurized in bottles so that it might last until it reaches our shelves.

It might seem
as though my gratitude today is for these things.
For this seeming bounty of fresh
[but is it fresh]
abundance.

in truth
my gratitude today is for the belief
that we can change this system.
