"My friend could be killed, I can do nothing about that
except not be the person who kills him. And I will not
be the person who kills the person next to him,
and I will not be the person who interrogates dreams.
I will not be the person who looks under cars
with mirrors, looks in people's throats for bombs,
I will not dust the little signs under clocks in the bank,
Paris, Calcutta, I will insist it is the same time
everywhere, listen to me, big man, "I will insist,"
I will beg, will take to my knees, will listen to snow
stroking air, a sky of gasps, will open my mouth,
swallow, somewhere else the sky is falling,
somewhere else it gets back up."
"My faith-based initiative," Bob Hicok
