2022 Poem Two

CW: Mentions of eugenics, anti-abortion protests, HIV, COVID, accusations of grooming



We’re on the edge.

Don’t cover your eyes, your ears.

The writing has been on the wall.

Written in the blood of those who came before me.

Your rose colored glasses just hid the warnings.


40 Days for Life;

no kink at Pride;

calling us groomers all over again;

CDC failure after CDC failure from HIV to COVID and before;

Eugenics baked into policy and law.


I’ve seen it coming.
I’ve watched it it swallow comrade after comrade.

If we’re lucky, we get a few bones back.

I’ve seen it coming.
It’s just now at your door.
