half my steps today
up and down this hill--maybe
this year I'll keep up

somber morning walk
bones amid the greenery
o, this deadly spring

distant siren wails

brave Wisconsin voters
stood in line for hours--
six feet apart for hours--
stood outside in the rain


brave Wisconsin voters
stood up to voter suppression
stood up to gerrymandering
to show the world that this is what
democracy looks like now


may they all be safe

white-throated sparrow chorus
sings Alleluia!
