I can’t get out



this it’s so heavy



I am not


I am not


I am not


I am not—

enough is enough

we can shift reality

we will transform ourselves

& the entire history of coloniality

that weighs

down upon us

one binary


at a time:

“me vs. you”

“us vs. them”

“his vs. hers”

“ours vs. theirs”

“this vs. that”

—for it is not us to be this

bloody system

blood-filled system

blood thirsty system

blood floods, our lives, into the system

of clockwork operators

& we are not even mere cogs

within the system;

it’s why

my soul


for release out into the beyond—a field where we are

no longer in

wrong doing


right doing

but just doing what comes not-so

easily to the skin—


thy neighbor as thyself.


But then I

do not even love



what then

of my neighbor?
