American Appetites

Narrow are the Base Paths
       Our 
       Heroes
       Race 
       Around.

Slender are the Willows
       That,
       Shade
       Our
       Flowing 
       Creeks. 

Thin is our Forgiveness
	For
       Apologies
       Unmade.

Precarious is the Tightrope
	Our
	Hearts
	Dance
	Upon.

Paltry is our Patience
	For
	Red Lights
	In
       Commutes.
 
Solid is the Constitution
	Our
       Democracy
       Rests
       Upon. 

But Wide as the Mississippi is our
	Capacity for
  	Kindness, 
       Generosity,

And 

       Apple Pie.
