Family

This morning’s SF Chronicle reports that in his speech last night, Romney said, “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. My promise …is to help you and your family.”

I would say that our family includes the oceans and the planet. Not to recognize that is the worst cruelty. Adam David Miller in his poem: Recipe, a Love Poem states,

“Our only crime can be

the acceptance of cruelty,

an ignorance of berries and of beets”   from  Land Between, p. 112 (adamdavidmillerpoet.com)
