My Own Democracy

I like the blast of a real morning, sunlight

summoning

 

California.

I always knew            

 

that we don’t have to go to war,

and need not

 

compromise; peace itself

is inevitable.  Authenticity, too.  We should be having conversations

 

about who we are, if foreign policy

exists at all.  But I didn’t know

 

that I knew this, nor did I

dare to,

 

‘til someone

showed me.  That’s how this works! 

 

And I won’t

stop, now,

 

‘til the world               looks              

how I feel
