guerrilla tactics

tonight
I am going to the mall
wearing camouflage
face covered
but for my eyes

I will occupy the center bridge
over the concourse–
count the bodies
streaming store to store
within range

and
instead of tear gas
I will cloud the air
with confetti

in the place of bullets
I will rain down
chocolate
the fun size bars
in handfuls

indiscriminately firing

***Nelle, the best I could do

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
