The invitations are already out
for our local community dialogue
without need to shout or pout
about another straight white male monologue.
we have taken a nearly unprecedented step
of inviting straight white males
over the maturing age of thirty
to show up in droves
and not to speak.
you have heard this invitation clearly
discriminating not against Business As Usual
but for Busyness as Listening.
Once we have our multicultural plan in place
for this local health racing space,
we may invite our silent witnesses
to share with us what they
and we, perhaps,
about wisdom voices of non-elites
while elite over-voiced microphones
remain reverently on mute.
