BETO O’ROURKE

beto o’rourke

did something

stupefying

jaw dropping

awe inspiring

did I hear him right?

my husband says

yes, i did

lately

i’ve been having

fantasies

of decency

but

this was real

mr. o’rourke

he said

we should work with

countries

who are struggling

failing

for their people

to keep

their place

their land

homes, families

economies

with growth

and hope

he said things

like that

out in the open

out in the air

out in the places

that have the least

use

for kindness

compassion

and its

good sense

beto o’rourke

beto o’rourke

keep talking

on the way

to my state

make it a

national cry

keep it

keep this kindness

please
