navigating a world which feels like gravity is working in reverse

poetry from a place of resignation

false hope is worse than no hope
just as a cancer cell
is worse than a dead cell

the way people treat you
isn’t a reflection of them selves
it is a reflection
of what they can get away with

let people describe you
by the way you take up space
like spoonies
who have a chronic condition
and can’t give society all it demands

one man’s miracle is another man’s tragedy
(Evangelicals prayed for a Trump victory
and the expense of those of us with disabilities)

olfactory hallucinations are often popcorn
and voices in your head are usually male
and talk radio can drown out the voices for some people

Christians and psychologists think you can make resentment disappear
with a simple prayer, cognitive trick, or coping skill
the truth is resentment is like nuclear waste
it can’t be contained until it’s addressed
and often fully ridding yourself of it is impossible

on1 thing fo4 sure,
GOD HAS GOTTEN A LOT
