Lies Our Countries Told Us

Written by: Ellen Richardson

Get down! is no joke-
Amazon eyes meet
black, jungle eyes
No one backS down!
The genetic zipcode 
has travelled over
two (2) continents
on a tight-rope  
to say a false/friendly 
"Good Morning/Buenos Dias!'"
We serve it up with a side order of MEANS WELL
like  the Connecticut River in January
the pieces...peaces
float and bob upward near 
cease-fire redemptions
just in case mutual dreams
come to fruition
during the Panasonic night.
