1 Is Easy

One sex, one race,
one religion, one face.
One thought, one nation,
one dream, one altercation—
One is easy.

But gender,
belief, and ethnicity,
patriots and pariahs, authenticity,
need not tender
strife and bewilderment.

Two sexes and all between,
a spectrum of creeds,
not one, maybe fourteen,
and dreams innumerable,
left balancing right,
one is not enough
for any human heart.

One is easy
but one is not enough.
