america

i do not remember what you said

only what you did not say

the empty space got in the way

a silent wall

Impossible to embrace

there is no trail

of words

that linger for me to hold

just the hum of quiet

the owl in the neighboring wood

the cricket in the the blue

and you

standing in the misty fog

where years unravel

and silence is forever true

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerated the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt
