The Taste of War

Peace is more 

than the absence of war

though that would be a start.

But the dissolving of boundaries

constructed by humans

to cordon off one from the other

must follow

so there is no need

to shout across the divide

in our different languages.

Only then can we whisper

and hug our way to peace.

What we have now

still tastes like war

to me.
