Invitation to an Unmalling

What if,
instead of inviting people to the local mall
to further accelerate a fight,
we invite each other to join us
in the middle of the central-most concourse,
for a jazz improvisation of tai chi and yoga movements,
to breathe peace in and justice out together,
to grow in reflective mindfulness together,
to cooperatively appreciate each other’s participation
in the rhythms and patterns we discover
by moving and beating and breathing our hearts together
communicating belonging together
in this unmarketable community.

What if
we invited people to dance together
and side by side,
an impromptu self-invitation
to embody together at the mall
how we belong together
rather than flying apart?
