love
is not to be manipulated to gain.
it cannot be turned off,
if you have this for your children
you will not abide them sleeping outside your shelter
because you do not agree with their lives.
is not present if your hand only rises with your children
to hit.
to fight.
to break.
love is not any of these things.
love is a shelter, a space
built with hands, raised in the heat of the glory
for the endeavor toward something worth breathing for.
what people fight wars, all in the name of.
held for folk, town, country & group.
these things are mute, unchanged.
we can crawl across them
spread our eyes upon their surface.
looking for the crack in the logic spread before us.
.
this is not finished.
