It’s been three years since we celebrated together
Do you remember?
We thought 20Uhr meant 10:00pm and arrived at the end
of the jazz concert.
We went to a bar and took a birthday shot
and walked home along the canals.
Went to bed.
I dreamt about everything I would do in these years
that are now in between us.
We’ve talked about our dreams
We’ve taken steps.
We’ve hoped, we’ve cried, we’ve screamed
On the last day of Year 21 the world stopped to listen.
An electric ripple
us . . .
Tomorrow is Year 22.
The year of connecting and creating
The Paradigm Shift we speak of.
Tonight I take a shot alone
make this Birthday Wish for Black Lives
Birthday wishes come true
I will see you soon.
