But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate
— we can not consecrate
— we can not hallow — this ground.

If those backwards Americans then
–so divided yet united under God
–half slave and half free yet all fighting for others’ freedom

Could not hallow, could not consecrate – that ground
How can we?

From every larger sense …than ME?

Me – consumed by my every need,
Inflamed by my every greed and self-pity …to blame.

Diversity desecrates consecrate,
Diversity hollows hallow.

Diversity by whatever name,
Diversity by every game.

Thus every interpretation
Is lying in gestation.
