The Battle Begins

i want art to win
 to remind us of our past
 not steal our future
 


our hope gets swallowed
 behind headlines; dictators
 costumed by deceit
 


i want art to win
 for every imagined star
 hooked by my daughters
 


for these costumed shells
 to bring beauty back to us
 before it’s too late
