Poem for all ecological revolutionaries active in the Washington D.C. region.

Wild Virtue
Always at play
Whirling circles of light
The critical edge
Rejoices in victory
 
Unlimited wisdom and
Energy surges through
The interstices
Of time and space
 
Junctures in history
Epic stages of control and confusion
Rebellion is the constant
Because power has no friends
 
Comes a reckoning
That shocks awake
And washes away
The merchants of sweetness and pain
 
Meteor showers in the sky
You can smell the rain
Laughing, we go back to the places
We have loved, again and again
