Ken and Barbie


A vision of a perforated dotted line on
a map between
Kenmore and Barberton,2 tangent
Ohio cities. It might separate them.

Kenmore was more Appalachian
Barberton more Eastern
European. One sooner than the
other had citizens taking a
public stance against illegal US
wars.

Another meaning occurred:
that Barbie and Ken (bland
dolls marketed by profiteers)
were each transcending
form consciousness
and finding more soul-connected
partners.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
