Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Poetic Thoughts

What is spectacular
is not the subject of whimsical
definition, clouded by jaded ethnicity.

What is spectacular
is oracular; it presages
what could have been if
the political forces of darkness
had not gathered to enforce
the gruesome death of a dream

What is spectacular
is theatrical; it performed
the unity of disparate constituents,
hitherto singing the song of division,
around a rounded figure of peace. 

That is spectacular!

A day nothing spectacular happened.
