Politics: (5a) the total complex of relations between people living in society
Which begins, then, with two people.
Who perhaps have never met and very likely
standing on either side of the road hoping
motorists will see their signs
and have an epiphany, right there
in the middle of Church Street
pull over and take up a sign as well
until we’re all out here on a side
the asphalt ever wider
and hotter between us. My sign
says Who Is My Neighbor and hers simply
No More Change. When it rains
see how our Magic Marker letters
weep and weep into our hands.
