The Longest Post Ever

Do you believe any human to be subhuman?

I’m legitimately curious, not really trying to start a debate or anything.

Maybe Nazis are still humans or are they pure evil?

If you defend Nazis and racists go fuck yourself

Only the pertinent man will pass as white

Runaway slaves found freedom. They didn’t back out.

Now I seem to be missing some people on my friends list.

 

P. S. I’m all for toppling statues of historical scum bags

The only thing I find troublesome about taking down statues is a removal of history

I’ve tried so many kinds of angry protest

In this world, especially in light of recent events

I’m glad I’ve missed the news the past few days

These ideas will have me breaking through walls, left, right and center

It’s dangerous to go alone… take this!

 

I wonder, does Trump ever look at things and say, “What have I done?” or is he just that stupid

Friends, I’m gonna tell ya what the soldier told me: if you’re going on a mission

Practice shooting, or maybe we should just impeach him

 

II.

Somehow injured my tailbone to the point of immobility

It’s been 5 years since I dodged the reaper

Also today, I had to call 911 on the way to my doctor’s appointment

Sometimes volcanically angry young women are reduced to invalids

What would you recommend to a family member with esophageal cancer… and diabetes….

And heart disease… to help boost the healing process

To start feeling better?

 

I like knowing that some people will remember me as the girl who yelled at them for eating

I bought a can opener and found a pic I think I actually look good in

As a white-passing, multi-racial woman of color, I have always occupied a very weird space

I am the woman dressed in something that comes above the knees or elbows

But Im having a Sun King Dragon’s Delight to celebrate surviving

I want watermelons

I asked for a big water with my beer, the waitress did not disappoint

 

III.

We ate “hate cake” at a “traditional marriage rally” and now

Timothy and I have some big news to share with everyone

We’ve been building a baby’s dresser

When my 10 yr old boy asked for a phone case with the glitter liquid and pink

I asked him, “Are you sure you want THAT one?”

 

I’d rather have my child, but by golly, if I gotta give her up, we’re going to make it count

There are few things better than wide-mouthed slobbery baby kisses

 

I officially have the apartment to myself for the next week

Home alone for the next few days

Every pair of socks I own are cleaned, folded, and put away

 

IV.

Well son of a fuck man

Who could only grunt, shriek, or scream

America is so gridlocked with fuckery

Going according to plan, we just walked into an ambush

For real though, let’s put aside all the terrible shit going on and realise…

Our demise is just one panic attack away

 

When something troubles me I’m the type of person who needs to talk about it

We were both feeling stressed

At twenty-eight, I snitch all the time. Everyone will know your secrets.

The things we’ve seen are just so “weird”

I couldn’t believe the “truth” until I knew it myself…WOW

 

Then we drove through two states

We caravaned to Indianapolis, a day trip to see the sunflowers

We needed a pilgrimage

 

V.

Art Garfunkel has a M. A. in mathematics

JFK seldom talked about his sister Rosemary Kennedy, who was a bubbly champagne

Today’s got me thinking about how Harriet Tubman carried a pistol and how

Kim K said she is naïve about racism

 

So many things I want to say right now but would make this the longest post ever

Note: This is a Facebook poem – I grab statuses from my friends on any given day and try to take the heartbeat of social media. This post is from August 16, 2017.
