We Too: A Pastiche

We Too: A Pastiche
(inspired by Marilyn Johnson & U2)

In the hotel, a tattoo convention.
At the train station,
police with big guns and sniffing dogs.

On the web, Jesus and MLK
At the coffeeshop,
the homeless eating sugar packets.

In the park, a tea party crowd.
At the library,
books battle teachers and firefighters.

In the name of love, roll n roll.
In defense of freedom,
prisons without trials or rights.

Written on the skin, icons of light.
Around our bodies,
Symbols of dark might and vague lust.

In the heart, love and hate.
On the corner of the mind,
thoughts that have no end or death.
