To my friends in black and brown bodies, I love you. I stand with you. May your lives, your hopes, your dreams, your rights take flight. May you soar. May we all rise to create better ways together.
We all have work to do…to heal the collective trauma, and evolve our country to meet the ideals of our constitution… and to answer the natural call to love and for justice that resides in all human hearts.

It’s not everyday I get to shout poetry into a megaphone! Thanks to the organizers of the Spokane #FEMFEST19 for the chance to do so with this piece on Saturday night!

The time has come for Americans of good conscience to reclaim our nation from the plights of greed, apathy, and egregious evil that have assumed control of our nation. We can no longer continue to look the other way. We can no longer cower in the shelters of relative comfort, and mind-numbing entertainment. The time has come to rise. Rise to the call within your Heart. She will show you the way.
Unique and special
Must we fight
Subjugate to win
For what in the end
I’d like to dance
Down by the lake
For there at peace
Is the plane I’ve heard of
Devoid of right
Far away from wrong
Existence so different
From the stories been told
Scripts we’ve sold
Along with our souls
But I no longer buy it
This time with my life
