American Light – A Poem

From wikimedia

Stars and stripes billow

in the wind, blocking out the Sun

from time to time.

That light, the warmth of it, lost behind

red, white, and blue, but every

so often

the light peeks through

or around, especially when the stripes

aren’t looking.

And then the light shines, bathing and cleansing away the jingoist dirt.
