Invocation

The politicians have failed us.
The corporations have failed us.
Organized religion has failed us.
The media has failed us.
The military has failed us.

It is the poet
who must serve
as catalyst
for world peace
and sustainability

for it is
the transformative vision
of the poet that breaks down
and breaks through all
that divides us to find
the brother and sister
on the other side—

the poet who has reclaimed
his or her primeval power
indistinguishable and
undistinguished from

singer warrior maker
builder creator leader
healer prophet sage
magician shaman judge
sybil explorer painter…

Poet,
assert your birthright!
