weatherproof, a poem 11.16.16

Weatherproof a poem by jesu mikael 

 

Opponents and partners in a blind trust

faith, placed barely with confidence

an agnostic soul,

pulled north and pulled south

elastic, ecstatic, electrified and magnetic

Traverse the plateau

You’re not going up so you’ll never fall down

No worries about a thick skull

It’ll be thick skin you need

White flight and white guilt

Reverse racism

Gender role reversals

Fall below your own standards

Let someone beat you

Like you beat yourself

Stand for what you believe

Fall for anything you can

Be something, be all things boy

At least be a man
