Time lag, time out, times up
aka
for those not with us today and those who will be missed tomorrow



Spanish moss
hangs
______hea-
_________vy,
like history
and dead bodies
swa-----ying
in a breeze_____itself
hung with humidity
and white privilege
so... so______bright
it has blinded a nation
unwilling to
open
____itself
________wide
and wider
than ivory halls and thighs
have been willing to afford

I can not watch it anymore
day_____after_____day
piled upon
all the years of my life and
I know_____many
many_____more:
forward and backward.
I have lost track
of the damned and the saved
though the pattern is clear enough
but whether
this is purgatory
or hell_____I cannot remember
I have lost my compass
to a corrupted orbit-
a world never healed_____seemingly
s-e-a-l-e-d
in it's perpetual reflection
of it's murderous founders
as vapid as the ghosts in these trees.
I have lost sight of heaven
and see only this perpetual now
and have even lost the path
through these whispering funerary trees;
no roads home or through this valley
of misdirected woe.

I am cut off
from my self and most alone
in a world
that does not celebrate
or tolerate
being alone
or shown
the fear of their trees
and their cruel intentions
and the threat of
their statues with cruel intentions.
I do not know where to go
and my words
have become
gut----tural______mumbling
to myself,
the void
and a world run out of time,
a world willing to kill itself
as eagerly
as it is willing
to rub out black and brown and red bodies
walking, still
and talking, still
on the stolen land of ameriKa.
there is a white plague upon this land

Hi, sometimes you have to stand up and scream out loud for yourself and others. we have not done enough of that. to quote america's favorite rapist, how long can you tread water? I'm not much of a swimmer but I am exceptionally good at floating
