gun control

law and imagination
these are partners
within and among..
our written constitution
imagined long ago
from a dialogue crucible..
a written formula
compressed and contained
oral argument struggles..
this body fractures
without dialogue's 
renewing blood flow..
in history's initiation
shifting power slides
in that early time
 betwixt edges and center..
our constitution lives
runs and returns 
within each citizen's

James Madison
The Federalist Papers
