THIS IS WHERE IT HAPPENED
(Here is where we voted-
along with a long line /snaking into Randall's
They brought water for the voters
We drank each other in.Folk were taking selfies
Democracy in action!Cameras recorded Ben Franklin
with his three -cornered hat /lined up to vote.
We were so glad this was not a dictatorship
where voter suppression and gerrymandering took place..
Our tiny votes were taken We stepped out of the booth
If Texas turns Democratic/it will be South Austin who
lined up for a positive future/gave their poetic presence and ID
to make change,one takes baby steps towards democracy..
People wait to vote Tuesday at the Randalls on Ben White Boulevard. In Travis County, 35,066 voters cast ballots Monday, more than double the first day of early voting in 2012. RODOLFO GONZALEZ / AMERICAN-STATESMAN
