There's Still Time

There's still time
    to surprise me,
    to show up randomly at my door
    and pledge yourself
        to the revolution
        and to me,
    to don your old heroic gear
        and enter the battle
        once more,
    to open up your mouth
        and say no
        to the things that need
        to be said no to,
    to stand up,
    to fight for love,
    to reach for other humans,
    to be brave,
    to open your heart.

Hey Jim,

I was hanging out with a bunch of folks who were reading stuff aloud the other day, and it occurs to me that if I were to have read something I would have wanted to read one of your poems!
