because

you rubbbed

my shoulder

last night

a poem

travelled down

my arm.

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”

“Activism is the rent I pay for living on this planet.”

“Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming.”

“Never give your heart to someone who eats hearts.”
