Monkey On Our Back

Transformative

Not performative.

Dancing monkeys on a leash

Breathe

Spun myself into a frenzy

Tossed so many balls I lost track

Attraction is THE distraction

Monkey on a leash

So many fucking channels

Overloading the airwaves

Muffling out the cries

Can’t believe what is happening right in front of our eyes.

First amendment

Our right to assemble

Quietly.

A homegrown terrorist?

Because we want healthcare?

Housing for our houseless?

Terrorists stormed a capitol

Terrorists march with guns in our streets

Focus

Eyes like a laser

Breathe.
