people who were born when the world

like a split fig, bequeathing aubergine center

was half the size

in a fabled time when

individuals could be appreciated

for more than their overt strip-tease

hot and pulsing on flashy poles oiled by media

consumption

my grandmother

with her perfect straight teeth

and flossy hair refusing to be tamed

called a beauty in her day

would never have held up now

a corn maiden left to rot in untended field

days then, of gentle reproaching and

beguiling unknown

how intoxicate to consider, what you cannot reach

where now, less possesses such mystery

in its hoard of foil

than generations guarding jailers keys to reaching secrets

you could think all your life you were set

in one direction like weather vane, divining nature

and upon the death-bed of your elders, find out

nothing you rolled in your palm, was true

History is testing the American people. We dare not fail.

Meme regarding the right to choose our leaders

My partner and I plan to attend tomorrow’s March for Truth.

As he worried about violence I flashed on a 1974 march for
gay liberation in Boston.

We had about a thousand people.

Straights stood on rooftops and spat on us. Some waved guns.

As the march turned a corner, the bells of the Cathedral of St. Paul went off.

Everyone cheered and applauded.

I came back to the present and smiled at my partner: “So I die fighting for freedom; not a bad way to go.”

I didn’t know I felt that way.

I must have felt that way in 1974.

Perhaps courage is nothing more than a sense of responsibility..

History is testing the American People. We dare not fail.
