A Living Peace Sign

April 18, 2007

Cold frigid
frigid cold
icing through
each layer of
coats pants
pants boots
boots fingers
fingers holding
the banner
that reads
nuclear disarment


People smiling
smiling people
shivering to the
pledge of peace
throughout the stone
walls of the fountain
park empty
empty park
of nothing
but people freezing
the war on love
lighting candles
candles lighting
a living peace sign
warming Washington Square Park.
