My Charmed Life

BlackOut 1-20-2017

 

Red white blue
black and bruised again and again silenced shut down pushed down pulled down we bounce
Red white blue
black and bruised
Silenced shut down pushed down pulled under
we bounce
back
are buoyant
Red white blue
black and bruised we bounce back
Buoyant
float
Up from
Silence
This time
Always
carrying songs
and
medicine
and
poetry
Red white blue
black and bruised we rise and gather
become
medicine
And
music
and
poetry
we emerge
carrying
the whole world on our backs
This time
Always
