In honor of today’s July 4th Celebrations, I thought we’d do a little throw back Tuesday to a poem that first appeared during #100Days100Poems. We must continue to #Resist
Where Are You, America?
there you are, you scientists & park rangers & women & men & immigrants & green card holders & teachers & stay-at-home dads & stay-at-home moms & christians & muslims & atheists & agnostics & taxi drivers & people ` with open hearts and open minds and open eyes there you are wandering on the National Mall at the feet of Lincoln ferrying the Hudson, led by Lady LIberty’s light navigating under the Golden Gate gliding into the Port of Galveston marching in Lafayette Park & Battery Park in Copley Square & Herman Square on Market Street & Lavaca Street on Fifth Ave & Congress Ave landing and waiting and protesting @ JFK & SFO & DFW @ LAX & PDX & PHX @ PHL & STL & SAN & SEA @ IAH & DEN & RDU & ORD speaking out from Lexington to Little Rock to Philadelphia from Sacramento to Albany from Cape Cod to Corpus Christi from Memphis to Milwaukee to Kalamazoo speaking truth to propaganda in the Badlands in Yosemite & Yellowstone echoing through the Rocky mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains fist pumping at city halls and veterans halls in Houston & Honolulu in Burlington & Buffalo & Baton Rouge America you are everywhere and soon you will be back in the White House to put right the alt-right wrong the poisonous pencer the burnt orange trump card the fascist catastrophe the World will be rooting for you the World will be waiting for you the true America the just America the free America
