we all prefer our

we all prefer our
own approaches to pickling
same ingredients,

different methods – give us
our share, and no one gets hurt

allow us to go

allow us to go
first for a
change

first to call
it for what it is,
–isms, -ists, -phobias
and listen.
because unfailingly,
we are the firsts
to call it
for what it isn’t,
to call each other
out, the go-to tool
for those accustomed
to the short straw

it’s all well and good

it’s all well and good
to state that we will not show
up, that we will take
to the streets, show
solidarity by stepping out
of housework, child
care, maybe apply
some self-care at
the local beauty
parlor, therapeutic
spa. meanwhile, a
host of silent women
will step in
to fill the gap, make
the lunches, file the
nails, listen to and
nod and listen to the
ones who insist on
being heard

more than two-
thirds of the rules

we are swallowed by

we are swallowed by
the anthology of our
reflections, gathered

and used to explain in equal
parts, justice and injustice

between adam and

between adam and
eve, there is a universe
of hairline fractures

redistributing the weight –
pay attention to the pain

we are running below

we are running below
the red tick, a floor
removed from the
road, unbolted,
oblivious, nurturing
an ever widening
distance, high
on conditioning
