a map
marked with highlighters:
some areas marked with red
others shaded blue
and if you squint just right
so that the colors merge together
we see one nation
highlighted the tone of bruise
and I wish and hope
that one day
healing might begin
between the factions


another poem inspired by office supplies…but hopefully a deeper meaning emerges.

NaBloPoMo Day 9

(Also, of course, inspired by yesterday’s election in the USA.)
