Interstates
of
Interfaith,
and
Interrace,
are in disrepair.
Bridges built
long ago
to span
Rivers,
Chasms,
and surmount
Obstacles …
Today they are
unsound.
We ply them
with traffic
going in opposite
directions,
off ramps to
different worlds,
separate nations,
alternate realities.
Nowhere.
What has become
of the credos?
The founding
values found
in bas-relief
on
Institutions,
National landmarks,
Town Halls.
Are they merely
part of their façade?
