For Taylor Mali in the land of Gandhi
World Peace Interrupted
Imagine a poem that pursues world peace.
Thanksgiving dinner sans arguments.
A school playground without a scuffle.
Civility returns to the U.S. Congress.
Imagine a poem that elevates world peace.
Rappers remove F-bombs from their lyrics.
Folsom Prison skinheads play music on the bars.
Mississippi clansmen burn hand-me-down sheets.
Imagine a poem that promotes world peace.
Machetes melted for dinner plates in Ethiopia.
Fights in Thailand are over Pad Thai or Woonsen.
Tanks backup in North Korea.
Imagine a poem that advances world peace.
Cartel guns in Mexico go silent.
Harmony settles over Palestine.
War no more in Afghanistan.
Imagine a poem that encourages world peace.
The spirit of Gandhi spreads throughout Pakistan.
Bomb-makers in Karachi bake honey cakes instead.
Al Qaeda begs forgiveness before disbanding.
I’m writing a poem to establish world peace.
“Lennon would have turned seventy today. Imagine.”
“I already have.”
