HOME NOISE

There is a droning. The fans
wag their heads slowly,
blowing hot air around,
pretending to be as cool
as the AC.

There is a giggling. The children
laughing, innocent, childish,
running, lacing the yards
together, a stitching
of pure glee.

There is a burring. The mowers
eating neighborhood lawns
making all grass equal, each
at a slightly different pitch,
gas-fueled harmonies.

There is a rumbling. The trash
cans being rolled to the street
making artificial thunder on
a cloudless cool night, the
early moon keeping watch.

There is a humming. The houses
at night, filled with just the
right people, vibrating quietly
with joy, satiated on love,
and yielding to sleep.

We could have used more poetry in our 2016 politics. In 1985, Mario Cuomo claimed of political campaigns, “You campaign in poetry. You govern in prose.” Sadly, most of the recent campaigning has consisted of petty insults, whining, profanity, obscenity -- generally scabrous speech not fit as poetry or comprehensible speech. And when it comes to governing? Forget about it. Good prose connects people. There’s little good about what’s happening in our government or our daily discourse.

We need more poetry. Once upon a time, we were a country of great poets. Whitman, Eliot, Auden, Frost, cummings, Sandburg, and so many more. Those poets inspired our statesmen to high ideals and a better vision for moving our country forward. Now? Well, not so much. There are still great poets, but no one is listening to them. That’s just, as one candidate recently liked to quip, “Wrong.”
