So Be It

Bella Levenshteyn

After I sent you the Cardenal poem
About bloody coltan cell phones

You asked me what
I think you should do

Now that’s easy:
Share your light

Don’t hide it
Don’t dim it

That is all
That is enough

As Manhattan is connected to Minsk
And Bhopal is linked to Bi’lin

Have a yard sale
For all your bushel baskets

Rotate slowly
Shine your light
