holding my breath
waiting for sanity to return
to an upended world.
payroll tax relief those 
who aren't working.
testing doesn't help those
who have no insurance.
when will we learn to 
love our neighbor as ourself?


i will speak my truth
without hesistation.
maybe you will like it.
maybe you will hate it.
if i let that shape me
i am not me, and this
would not be
my truth.
