Our small dance facing towards Madrid, with people drawn from across Scotland.
“The kids in the park didn’t know the score
Except in football. There they were,
Nonetheless. That’s the thing about consciousness.
Ruthless in capaciousness. The more
We look, the more we see. The more we move,
The more we feel. Our minds extend out to
That field, those boys, their ball: toys of our
Inclusion, all. A global underscore
Need not be sane, need not be fair; it reminds
Us that we’re there, always, prior. Everywhere.
Where we look, there is the world: Madrid, or
Wales, or here. Standing on this mended floor,
We are together in our war to make
It all make sense, our disparate intake.”
