Lions Roar : May 2019
Poet and writer ANNE WALDMAN is the artistic director of the Summer Writing Program at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Her most recent book is Trickster Feminism, and she is currently working on a book of essays entitled Bard Kinetic. These are the beautiful reinvigorating Negative Ions of Governance Of sane stewardship The stage the arena the continuum the incubator A vison that includes us all, not a dream deferred Promise going deep Inside our skulls, little theatres of hope and fear This is the antithesis reality, a beginning again Let’s help turn this torqued troubled nation around Transparency, as opposed to insularity Leadership and compassion as opposed to exploitation, cynicism, and cruelty This is the victory reality while we still have a chance Take this to Washington, Evoke the natural world we can’t lose touch with Still so vibrant and begs our help, don’t tarry! Don’t tarry! Invoke the consciousness, the mind of that world, the Spirit-dralas of elemental presence Colorado is awake now in its own populace its own promise We are tasked with transmitting the endangered spirit of the earth And our endangered humanity “We never know how high we are Till we are called to rise And if we are true to form Our statures touch the skies,” wrote Emily Dickinson This is the antithesis reality, antidote to atrocity, Breathe in the beautiful negative ions of true governance, Breathe out the efficacy of what we may give generously to the world Governor Polis, In good body, mind, spirit Lead us well! ♦ © 2019 by Anne Waldman.
