Reserved For Those Who Remain Neutral…

Originally posted 11/19/2015.

The hottest places? No.
Dante knew better. 
The cold places — the ones
where a candle in the crisis wind
into a red icicle of pointless pose —
that’s where the neutral ones belong.
Hear them sniffling,
wriggling as they hang stiffly
on the fence.

Those of us on either side of a question 
who cannot cease raging and roaring 
may be wrong, may be right,
may burn in hell
for what we believe
or perhaps shall rise 
the glorious sun.

We may believe
in neither heaven nor hell,
but we do believe
in heat.
