What’s a person to do?

We need to bring the country together.

It takes more than financial aid;

It’s harder than getting your “jab”

and that ain’t easy.

It’s bigger than Biden.

Where is the healing power?

Surely not in canceling

those who see differently.

Cynicism, left and right,

Carries the day.

If we let it.

Is there an embrace,

A conversation that moves us closer

even if we’re not yet together, 

and may never be?
