your armchair activism

has lost its stuffing
nothing left to soften the real
yet we look everyday
words of sages
distorted but still cognitive
a broken mirror can be a message
in itself

a speech

the other night
by a president
carpet-bombed guernica

we mute the sound
let the children
bach bourree segovia
