Have you and I
resolved to know
that we've come
upon a closed passage
with air seaping
out so quickly
leaving no room
left to breathe

Have we reached
the ends' impasse
when we bypassed
an untimely beginning

Can we agree to disagree
about how you overtook
my subsistence
and
squeezed...leaving me
airlessly g-a-sp-i-ng
so hard as to not
leave an open space
in my heart
to compose another
aspirated s-i-g-h
of love and relief

Did you know I had fallen
into the very oxygen of you
only to watch as you
abruptly remove the
mask from my respirator
which made me short-winded
and temporarily
incapacitated...
turning
Code Blue~
needing
your love's CPR to be
revived back to
a state of normalcy ~
only to see
you escaping
through the ventillation
behind your own created,
self-imposed chaos
because you were not
ready to inhale me
completely...
but I exhaled
for a life
with you ~
whereas you only needed
a whiff....and a sniff...
So, I continue
to search
for the elements of
you in the darkness
of a lost silence
and from within
my own
equiparencies
when you
left me in
tight quarters
with
...no
......room
......... to -- breathe

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
