Polarization is safe in our hands

If we allow our polarizations
to breathe in our presence
we will find polarization is safe
in our hands and the content
of our views matters far less
than our coming together.

We fear polarization because
we have never looked on
its other side and
seen it is in us.
Fear not; take
my hand, let us
walk round and see.

The object is not to heal
the divisions among us
nor yet to blend us into
one bland pablum
—there are so many of us that
seething creativity is sure—
the object is to bring
it all in
to whole
For it is all us, human
