I place these marks on this whiteness
As I am at a place in my life where
I do not want to hear any bitter talk about
the way I think or speak.
I am a mumbler without a memory of who
I met yesterday and who
misspells his meanings as he speaks.

I am not the clear thinker who speaks at rallies
and lifts the crowd into an organic frenzy.
I do want to run for Congress because we do need a simple mind in
places where a simple mind can speak of the emotions of the common man..
