ANXIOUS
 
Bad weather announced by sun-dipped models
murder sold in slow motion by AstraZenica
war approved by big oil
the nightly news makes me anxious
with its dramas invented
its grievances inflated
its memes baited and switched
 
Warning: some images may be sickening
the powerful need you to be afraid
 
I get worked up when I should be
coming down from the like/diss diad
money as character reference
nature as enemy
My memories even my eyes focus on mistrust
prepared for apocalypse
 
Time has come to make decisions out of enthrallment
acknowledge my own personal weather
hold peace talks with myself
and listen for tenderness among the apparent ruins
 
Warning: truth begs for your approval
the suffering need you to imagine betterment
