blue state

Surfacing in the torrent
of admonitions and polls: 
this tiny note from you,
a voice intoning come on--
Grab hold, you don’t need no
sticker to affirm nothing.
You got my vote. A vote for we.

Poem #6 of 30 Poems in November to benefit Center for New Americans

  1. It's not about the me, but the we. That's the vote that counts.
    Cheers, Marian.

  2. With sons as teenagers, I find I am often reminding them ... "We are on the same team!" Great poem!

  3. I want to write like you one day. Love how short a sparse you are--how much you say with so little.

  5. "We" - possibly the most underused word in the political process. (Practically) perfect (in every way) as always.
