“Listen” by Lynn White

Listen, can you hear them? The sounds that went before the wall was built. Listen, I can hear them. Not the wall builders, no, not them, but others who also don’t want to see what lies beyond. What lies on the other side. Others who will build walls in the future. But listen, we can hear them. Listen. Listen for when the cracks appear, then push.
