In Liverpool, for example, if we take the ferry crosses the Mersey
and choose bus or double decker bus for onward transport
these buses tempts us in many different colors
blue, green, yellow, red, black, white, purple, pink etc.
The colors tells us nothing about where we’ll go, just who owns them
diversity of route options are made visible only by the route numbers of the buses.
Similarly, diversity between us humans, “just” are a coloring or spice of life
it tells nothing about if each of us are on the right path.
Diversity may end up in landfill or in celebration
in the very end, it’s all our own responsibility.
