Faith crisis poetry

Black and White

  1. Weak and might, dim and bright.
  2. Peace and fight, day and night.
  3. Loose and tight, dark and light.
  4. Walk and flight, black and white.
  5. Black and white are simple, see?
  6. Wrong for you, and right for me.
  7. Black and white’s an easy choice,
  8. Helps to justify my voice.
  9. Black and white are options two:
  10. Yours is false, and mine is true.
  11. Black and white’s a myth, okay?
  12. ’Cause inbetween’s a tonne of grey.
  13. Accepting grey develops love.
  14. No one beneath, no one above.
  15. Just side by side in common goal.
  16. In mind, and might, and heart, and soul.

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
