somehow, we are all

somehow, we are all
americans until we
are not – immigrant

solidarity has always
been this fragile, unrooted

we are attempting

we are attempting
to speak with a single voice – no
group has ever built

unity underneath an
invisibility cloak

in the process of

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
