i have answered the call
and am slowing down
what is happening while we are all consumed with our screens?
i want to put my phone in a box and ship it to timbucktu
one of these evenings while making dinner me and tiff
(in our slam poetry voices)
riffing off of ancestor gil scott-heron
tiff: the revolution will not occur on your screen!
me: the revolution will not be a hashtag
tiff: you can not @
me: or dm the revolution
the revolution will not go viral
i am screen-sick and scrambling to reread octavia's prophesies
dodging pressures to create content to pacify
i am grieving.
i don't want to know nothing about the words coronavirus. pandemic. unprecedented. covid-19. relief. shelter-in-place. virus. pivoting to digital. shout outs to essential workers.
we are changing
capitalism is hungover
old systems crumpling
i invite you to slow down with me
to make a ritual
outta placing your devices into boxes for long stints
getting somewhere and sitting down
reflecting on (the land) home
make yourself at home on these pages. get comfortable. explore and engage
and like always enjoy.
much love and light
