there’s something soothing

there’s something soothing
playing over the airwaves
as democracy

what are we letting

what are we letting
go of in this moment, this

two hundred pieces of art, as
fires spread into a sixth night

next to the tear in
the fabric

several notes with
suspicions,

it’s all well and good

it’s all well and good
to state that we will not show

to the streets, show
solidarity by stepping out
of housework, child

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
