Hey! Oct 14, 2017

It makes me sad when I learn that in the first world country 
there is such a thing as pink-collar job, you know
And it makes me sad to learn that that kind of job is paid even shittier 
than blue collar job you know

Villanelle for Valerie: A Response to ‘The People’s Republic of Valerie’ May 6, 2017

At some point we’ll wake up scattered to our being
Struggling to know as we circulate what’s real
Nurse says our thoughts reflect the things we’re seeing

Questioning the truth to which we cling
We float in space but rarely constellate each other
At some point we’ll wake up scattered to our being

We seek refuge in the unknown when grieving
I used to wonder who would guide my fate
Nurse says our thoughts reflect the things we’re seeing

Yesterday was a day. The U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of the glibly named American Health Care Act, which, if approved by the Senate, would push back the Obama administration’s expansion of Medicaid and weaken protections for people with preexisting conditions, raising costs based on health history.
