And now we judge one another
more than I remember Niko Roumanian farmer
shopping at his stand for years
impossible not to like Niko he came in the fifties
worked hard on the farm his daughter’s
a doctor in Oneanta Niko calls Peter Daniel Ortega
signs on his stand
for the other team we stop there
for cabbages and corn
still talk to Niko avoid the anger
and self righteousness of difference
the how could you conversation.
All still together somehow.
