Mind Alive

I don't know anyone who drives a Hummer
or is rich
or desperately poor
or Republican
what would we talk about

for Gide existence is a moral adventure
truth matters
courage is required
to the point of exhaustion
mind alive

what ideas would we talk about
unjust distribution
warped lives
that history informs
that culture is all we have
