Hands on Politics
I worked for my candidate today
in a stuffy warehouse instead of
packing picnic for walk in woods.
I made myself call strangers on
cell phone I don't use on my own
because I believe future depends
on citizen commitment to remaking
government of, by, for all people .
Seductive trap to accept passive
role as consumer of government.
entitled to argue, lament, complain.
