a child’s magician hat–
dust motes float
in the moonlit attic
fire ants swarming
over a rotted squash
Creaking gate —
the crows evenly spaced
between the headstones

We disagree, however, with Prof. B. about whether John Kerry will have a mandate. Our worry: that a Bush re-election “mandate” will make the American people co-conspirators to global recklessness in the eyes of the world. Unlike citizens under a dictator, Americans are responsible for the actions of its Government.
