Never before 2016 has political news turned my
bowls to water…
The frequency of this occurrence in 2020 would have
me diagnosed with IBS should I seek a doctor’s care.
My body is not the problem though; it is merely an indicator…of fear…
of a country gone insane with hatred, vitriol and murder.
of our democracy in peril.
of a possible existence I have only seen in foreign lands
of the reversal of my marriage
of the end of life and my country as I have known it.
I think my body’s telling me to get moving, get involved.
I always vote, but now I’m activated!
