Stuck at another endless red light
How will I leave if it’s a Cat 4 or 5?
Will I make it out alive?
I consider the fragility of my state
(and I mean my mind)
Refugee status is one crisis away
But then I disagree
(with myself in my mind)
Catastrophe and Calamity
have already arrived!
My status is wavering and faltering
like the ground beneath my feet
My fears are well founded:
The displacement of my gender
The violation of my validity
Declaring war on me
Religion that seeks my submission
with no regard of my opinion
never mind my cognition
A refugee in my own nation
The waters are rising on a blue sky day
Day 16: Came home from work and this is what happened. Florida is on the front line for climate and political change. A fragile beauty that continues to be destroyed on land and water.
