we will still have joy

we will still have joy
when we are in community
with one another –

someone will start giggling,
then we will all fall apart

we are showing up

we are showing up
differently in this moment,
for once,
twice, and as
we are called,
for every time –
commit to memory
the color,
the volume,
the depth,
the shape

for every one

for every one
individual resisting
what is, there are one
hundred and one
of the masses
willing to
wear a button
for the resistance

there is little to

there is little to
no room for forty winks and
a yawn in the thick

of monday in the city –
the city always resists

who schedules

who schedules
and builds
the layering within an
onion, assembles
each membrane
with the fleshy
parts, alternating
resistance
and tears?

some silences will

refuse to budge – it takes years to
build such resistance

we come across days

we come across days
when even the seconds are
resistant – there is

only so much we can do
to unfurl, get out of bed

even now, we are

even now, we are
rehearsing this newest
compulsion to
rebalance, a
gentle pressure to
resist,
but not so much

there is an old, new

there is an old, new
paralysis – a hitchhiker
on the most bearable
days, a parasite on
the worst – that pins
down a hand, an
arm, a leg, a morsel
of every hour, crushing
the cells and membranes
of day. we feel
sick about it all
the time, emerge
from the stupor
spasmodically to ask
one another for best and
worst case scenarios,
readjust our negativity
bias for a version
of survival

awareness is not

awareness is not
action – this morning,
over the toilet bowl,
recognizing that the
body will eventually
act, revolt,
when administered
enough poison
