Poem: Dominant Views

By: JD DeHart

dominantViews

I pause, waiting for the moment
to let my words drop in,
funnel down, and channel through
the table conversation

The moment is still waiting because
a few topics dance back and forth,
flames of political or religious
controversy, and I do not care to find

myself in their center, swatting
away arguments like insects,
so I simply choose to be silent
until my turn may arrive.
