Be Kind

My husband asked me, “Do you think you can tell who someone will vote for just by looking at them?”

I thought about it, about how people dress, their carriage, whether they wear a mask, my central casting versions of Rockefellers, Rednecks and Resisters. I decided I couldn’t.

“But, you know what?” I said. “I judge how people will vote by how they behave. If people are rude, I assume they are Trump voters. Not caring about other people is the definition of rudeness. And that’s the definition of a Trump voter in a nutshell.”

Be kind. Be safe. And enjoy this month’s poetry collection.
