These kids are going places.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” - April 16, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr: Letter from a Birmingham Jail
David Hockney “We Two Boys Together Clinging” 1961
Oil on Board.
Walt Whitman “We Two Boys Together Clinging"
Calamus (Leaves of Grass 1891-1892)
We two boys together clinging,
One the other never leaving,
Up and down the roads going, North and South
Power enjoying, elbows stretching, fingers clutching,
Arm’d and fearless. eating, drinking, sleeping, loving,
No law less than ourselves owning, sailing, soldiering,
Misers, menials, priests alarming, air breathing, water
drinking, on the turf or the sea-beach dancing,
Cities wrenching, ease scorning, statutes mocking,
Fulfilling our foray.
