even in the land of

even in the land of
the free, we collectively
grieve when no one
is stepping up to
lead us,
hide our sons and
daughters from our
neighbors, run directly
into traffic,
masked or unmasked, struck
by the myth of
heroes and villains

is just that –
there will be a

adventures
to put off

edge of folklore
and fairytale,
between the shimmer
of legend and myth
,
we are always
practicing someone
else’s composition
of faith – perfecting
the sudden
trills, being stuck
polishing the bass.
and even when
we have achieved
the desired
articulation for
devotion,
the subtlest
stirring can fumble
the smallest
melodic gesture
