Inner Peace Doesn’t Sell

Inner peace doesn’t sell.

Worse yet it ranks below
side show humor,
car crashes,
AB AB rhyme schemes
and creepy love poems.

Art subtle as
shifting colors
(be it silk or grocery bag) 
swaying; sliding in the wind
is just the visual score
of time passing.

All of this
is just the visual score
of time passing.

Inner peace
has no 12 step plan
no cue cards
no universal truth
no meter
no message
no matter
no memorization
no conveyer belt to salvation.

Inner peace
personal truth
is the journey of
4 limbs
2 feet
and one thumping organ of
romanticized love
running, stumbling
and sometimes slowly
and quietly creeping
hope and equality.
