Estranged Neighbors

Peace and Hope live
but never say hello.

Choose your ally:
Peace, for what is
Hope, for what could be.

Hope, you can take
to a carnival.
laugh at bright lights
and throw funnel cakes with.
Powdered sugar on every
exposed inch.
A high
five after a ferris wheel ride.
cotton candy regurgitation
You’ll go home dizzy.

But Peace,
Peace you can live with.
No need for
Bright powdery sugar lights,
spinning rides.
Peace lines your belly
with crackers and Sprite
to ease
that cotton candy wretch.

Peace is who
you left at home
to make way for Hope.
