Here

I draw a line

beneath the ledger of

you/me,

totting what’s in

the black

and counterpoising

red:

one mortgage

paid off;

two daughters grown;

one medium sized

car purchased new (two

major repair jobs);

one kidney

transplant (yours)

vs.

global corporations,

the 99%,

hunger & poverty,

depression, fear

and

greed

*

Scales

sliding towards

the personal, I

tally the bulwark

that is us

against them
