Be open, discuss and share.
People will get it and you won’t regret it.
When the powerful know they have you ensnared.
You’ve been opened, read, pinned, labelled and bookmarked.
Stigmatised, stamped on, crushed, dried, composted, buried, rotated,
and s c a t t e r e d … The many seeds of yourself burst open, take root and
lift themselves up, ready. Ready to be cut down and plated up. Ready to be consumed.
The eyes of the powerful take aim, and forks rise up, before
stopping. The eyes see the products of the harvest, the
faces in the corn. The many mouths of your many
parts, open up and the powerful, now deluded,
hear you. An ending, their ending, that is
now well and truly
