poetry 2017 / 014


It doesn't matter
if you think your fundamental rights
are being compromised
by a law that values religious freedom
over the right to be an asshole.
What about my fundamental rights?
Or that black guy? That latino?
Mesha Caldwell who didn't even
merit a byline after Trumps latest tweet?
Or Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow?
Your religious freedom kills people
when all we Others want
is to live life in peace.
