Change

change

we all think
we’re ready for it

embrace + adapt
become stronger wiser more beautiful

The glitz over the filthbut the reality
is a patchwork volcano
pieces roiling and
shifting underfoot
unbalancing you

until you’re flat
on your back
peering through the
shocked smoke of something
suddenly gone

at a
layered lava
ceiling you don’t
recognize

harsh consonants
scraping ungentle reminders
on your ears
urging you to rise up

when it’s all
you can do
to just

breathe
