A Recipe for a Better World – Poem for Vallejo Soup

On September 27, 2018, I had the honor of performing a set of poetry for the community funding organization Vallejo Soup at the Vallejo People’s Garden. This is the poem I wrote for them.
A Recipe for a Better World
Take a dash of love,
a cup of cooperation,
stir together with some unity,
and invite the whole community.
Multiple chefs don’t spoil this soup.
The more the merrier
on this island of the mare.
So boldly we dare
proclaim that together we can!
Together we can
build the world we want,
raise one another up,
hold one another,
stand up for each other.
Together we can.
Together we can
do so much more,
be so much more,
live so much more.
The joy of this evening
spent together dining
in this people’s garden
rings out collectively
as a shield against sorrow.
Our support unites
us with one another
to make our community better,
planting the seeds
that will harvest a better tomorrow.
