those of us who are mad
the world’s malfeasance
mad for all the wrongs
we are not only trying to right
may perspective grant us the
gratitude to keep our heads
in check for knowing
the world is better for our anger
to enter insanity is to think we
the angry ones
we embrace each other
in our madness
because we can
signaling – 2
you are my hero.
not because you are
to take in
for a moment.
an opinion similar to yours.
an opinion different from yours.
words on death or love or war.
words on water and fire and earth.
words on lapis or nebula or ice cream.
words on nothing or godlessness.
words on power or sisterhood or whiteness.
words that never mattered to me until i wrote them.
because you believe there must be words
on yourself and everyone around you as heroes
is why you are now among mine.
i crave for words to contemplate.
i create with words for the sake of self-determination.
let them breathe.
with words of others.
