Note to Self

— Amy Meier

If the 2016 election process felt as though
a proctologist was reaming through
the dark and fearful places of our country
and ourselves, if you have begun to question
whether an 18 month colonoscopy is really
necessary for our form of democracy,
may I suggest you step outside
where black spotted yellow butterflies
ride highways of air currents through the sky,
where migrating swallows fly a strobe
of light and shadow.
While you accepted voluntary thrall
to 24 hour news do you recall if
you had any direct contact with
the gradual and subtle dawn,
or sunset reflected in a pool,
perhaps, moonlight
on a silent street at night?
Note to self:
the focused lens magnifies
both ugliness and beauty.
There is always a choice.
Choose beauty.
