These people, he says in the paper
They give him a place to say:
Most of these people have underlying causes.
Are the underlying causes of
Acres of code and planted trees
Child care, eldercare, everyone care
Grocery bagging, plumbing
Teaching fairy tales
Stories, paintings, sculpture, songs
Road work, landscape photography
Perfectly roasted chickens
Laughter, laughter, more laughter
Conversations about Doctor Who
And Godzilla and snapdragons
And what games we played at our Gran’s
And how the street cars used to be
Before you were born,
Before everything changed
As it is always changing.
Turn out to underlie everything.
