In the Marble Mazes

Almost floating after fourteen days of fasting,
a CODEPINK butterfly flitted and fussed
at a Senator in the marble mazes.
Necklaced with a sign pleading for the children
of Iran, she would stand, tall and slim, at those
self-aggrandizing hearings,
Asking just to meet, to have assurance that
diplomacy had primacy and
Not the spoken idiocy and rhetoric of WAR.
A Mariposa in the Marble Mazes of D.C.
In a metamorphosis for PEACE.
Charlotte~ A CODEPINK Peace Crone
