Mere earthly remains/

Implicates our city’s scale/
Mysterious death/

Away from his school unwatched/
& ended up dead/

27. Autistic skill sets/
Hide full human emotions/
#Avonte, I weep!/

#Avonte was still a child/
With all life’s promise/
#haiku

29. #Schools do a great job/
Though they can’t do ev’rything/
Give them all a #raise!/

Hoping my heart will decide/
I want to improve/

Is possible if I try/
Different actions/

Back To City Two

Returning back home/
Resuming daily routines/
Seeing diff’rently/
#haiku

17. Walking the same streets/
Seeing the same detritus/
Loving differently/
#haiku

18. I observe little/
Change that makes differences/
But still I have faith/
#haiku

19. Cities’ momentum/
Hurtles humans forward to/
The place that they were/
#haiku

20. The repetition/
That cities facilitate/
Revelatory/
#haiku

21. The revelation/
That repetition provides/
Is hidden in work/
