Homogeny


If by flags in homes the family is met,
then the world is opened in sections,
each person on morsels,
each person near wares,
and their children are assembled;
they must open up on a world of assembly.

The dilemmas of grandparents
transfix the wars of grandchildren.
Dilemmas by flags and land
are sectioned, just as the
grandparents and forechildren
are sections themselves,
and do not overlap but where
parents are children—
      a diplomacy,
      an anchor,
      and a flag,
they must open up on a world of resemblance.
