Jury Duty

this is america
this multicolored line waiting in the early morning sun
outside the courthouse
the cool air filling up with the murmur of many languages of we the (very different) people but one nation indivisible

some would seek to put an end to this democratic experiment
the jury is still out

beside me a tiny spider hangs from a fragile strand
