leadership is not loud

rich is a shining jewel in the pile of bricks 

that is the american age of images.
she is another missing brick in that wall.
rich made men cry for what they thought.
she only wanted honesty.  you
honestly.
for a mountain of minds 
riding upon her shoulder
she offered.
confidence.
by defying. 
entertainment.
Be nice to Adrienne:
turn off your
TV.
sever the connections
you cannot touch:
Carry water to the river.
 
Adrienne Rich was not about instant gratification.
