so you like jazz

not really much of an opening
in a club
where that’s all they play

so what
on the piano backed by bass
is how I feel tonight

and the answer is no
I live it sometimes

and sometimes its just
background music

for my life.

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?
