The Equilibrium Artist

The Equilibrium Artist

Every day
as I walk by
the Inuksuk beside the Pacific
I yearn for an artist who could raise
a similar statue in Mosul and Aleppo
from the fragments
of exploded homes
through patient
and elaborate work
someone who could shape monuments
so startling at war sites that they’d shake us
from numbness and awaken our gaze
towards a baby caught in a nightmare
about to fall from its cradle
