The Gandhi History Museum

leaving history to a place as relic
in the museum of old thought
brings the end times into a glass case
alongside communism

sweeping the floor a janitor might muse
what thought might be encased next
in the now empty case where
transparency escaped to wikileaks
servers in the culture of now
and immediacy of outrage

coming next the schoolchildren
in the museum tours
writing papers on this field trip
and they all write
about the "nothing" (if they haven't left
for the street demonstration
to practice non-violent action)
