it is looking more and

it is looking more and
more likely that
we have been weighing
the wrong things, counting
and measuring
that which is
not easily
quantifiable, things we
can’t wrap our heads
around. we have
disassociated, splintered,
fractured ourselves for
too long to contain
so much, we can’t
be reliable data
within these set
values, even words
are no longer
enough, nor
meaningful

after all this time,

after all this time,
and icarus, we still long
for wings – as if we

could ever learn from someone

of expertise

the backyard, our grass is your
grass, so stop eyeing

the veggies and fruits of our
labor, grown from twice stolen land

perhaps justice is

part of doing land

part of doing land
acknowledgements is truly
recognizing that

they’re everywhere – scenes of the
crime, homes, twice, three times stolen

in the history

in the history
of responding to
acts of division,
the go-to responses
were to draw the
curtains or take to
the streets. perhaps
there is a
kaleidoscope of
choices, waiting
for us to rotate,
reflect, come
together, and
conjure them
into place

to acknowledge that
power was extracted is
the beginning of

a reckoning, a decision
to be held accountable
