me.261let’s make peace and give it a chance
make dinner and serve it up hot
let’s make love and marry or not
make some babies teach them to dance 

make good music a grand entrance
make time without asking what for
make art make dreams come true and more

make mistakes make amends make tea 

make someone laugh make them happy
let’s make a better world not war

I have been trying to write a poem about peace for my friend Jamie’s “Poets Against War” on her blog Into the Bardo. Everything came out so stilted– no point trying to force the muse– until I was in the airport in Rio thinking about my family and events of the past few weeks, and this decima just popped out. A bit late, Jamie, but heartfelt.
